The really weird thing about Chicago is they they closed the Dan Ryan (I 
think - is that right?) when I lived there about 25 years ago to rebuild it. 
Everybody was forecasting all kinds of delays on the remaining interstates.

Nothing happened. The other roads were just as bad as usual, but no worse.

Maybe the ghost of old Mayor Daley got his voters to stay buried for the 
duration... :-)
