Sunday, August 14th, CSVT Picnic

Southwestern Chicago Suburb Dwellers, let's meet up and cruise to the picnic. To throw it out there, let's meet at 11 a.m. (Central Time) at the Speedway (formally Gas City) located at I-55 & Weber Road.

Your thoughts?

Take 80 to 394 south to Steger rd, not route 30. Let your gps take you from steger and 394.

I thought I-80 and I-355 are at the tail end of the construction?

There used to be one 2 miles from the picnic, then Gas City closed.
The closest one is at Meijer's about 5 miles north on 41.

If I recall. The construction on 80 East bound ends at Lagrange Rd where it opens up to three lanes. Why would you want to take 355 to 80? You'll be smack dab in the middle of the construction. 55 to 294 South to 80 will take you around the construction in the Joliet Orland Park areas.

I should be in for this. I do not want to go anywhere 80 west of 355!
Last Saturday afternoon I traveled 355 south to I 80 east with no issues. That's not to say we don't hit normal traffic, but no bumper to bumper or 35 mph grind unless there is an accident (which can happen anywhere).

I will know more on Sunday, but Jeff Novak (some of you have met, H/C/I C6Z06) is looking to meet up and join us around Lagrange Road and I-80.

Are you thinking of taking 55 to 355 then? When I first saw this I was thinking you were gonna take 55 to 80 and 80 over.

Yes, 55 towards Chicago, 355 South to 80 East.
I dont care what we take as long as we are not stuck in traffic.

I might cut somebody if I'm stuck in traffic on a sunday. I deal with that shit during the weak on rte 59 and 88 highway.

From Weber on to 55 North then 355 South to 80 East will be an awesome cruise! the trouble is all "WEST" of 355 to 55 so we have NO PROBLEM taking 55 East 7 min., to 355 South to 80 East to 394 South and we get off at Steger East.

It should be just fine.
