There's no doubt we're in the midst of construction season, but instead of building new towers, some crews will be working on road improvements. Starting today, ramp closures will be in effect to allow construction workers to continue on the massive Jane Byrne Interchange overhaul project. During the next two weekends, Congress Parkway under the Old Main Post Office will be shuttered and the Dan Ryan and Kennedy expressways will be narrowed down to just one lane. To get a look at the complete closure schedule, head over to the Tribune or DNAinfo for more specifics.
