I'm going off on a bit of a tangent today, to bring you the most inspiring document you'll ever read as a Chicagoan!
OK, that's a bit of a stretch. It's not quite "inspiring", but it's definitely a must see if you live in the Chicago area. I just wanted an excuse to share it with you, so I called it inspiring:)
As many of you know, I do the traffic reports for Chicago Public Radio. Over the last couple of years, I've gotten a lot of questions about the roadways and the traffic lingo reporters use. I decided to create a pdf detailing the Chicago roads with maps and full descriptions of what I'm talking about. You can take a look at the full file below or even download it to your own computer. I hope you find it helpful!!
