Ohio Feeder to and from Kennedy to close Sunday morning

The Ohio Feeder ramp from the Kennedy Expressway to Orleans Street will be closed Sunday morning, but should reopen in time to accommodate Air & Water Show visitors.

The ramp from I-90/94 will be closed from midnight until 7 a.m. Sunday to allow for maintenance and testing of the Ohio Street Bridge, according to the Chicago Department of Transportation.

The bridge will reopen by 7 a.m. so visitors can reach Air and Water Show venues early enough to save viewing spots, according to CDOT.

The full closure will also affect the westbound feeder from Orleans to the Kennedy, as well as ramps from the inbound and outbound Kennedy locals and eastbound reversibles.

As a detour, CDOT suggests drivers trying to access the Kennedy from Orleans go north to Division, and west back to the Kennedy. Drivers westbound on the Kennedy should exit at Milwaukee, then go southeast to Chicago, east to Orleans and south to Ohio. From the eastbound Kennedy, exit on Washington, then go east to Franklin (Orleans past the river) and north to Ohio.
