Chicago Illinois Truck Accident Closes Bishop Ford Expressway

In Chicago, Illinois a truck crash has forced the Illinois Department of Transportation (IDOT) to close the Bishop Ford Expressway in both directions at 115th Street, according to nwi.com. Vehicles are being forced to exit the highway at 115th and re-enter at a different location.

Apparently a large dump truck hit the 115th Street bridge, and inspectors are now evaluating the damage to the structure. How the accident happened and whether people were injured has not been reported.

IDOT is recommending drivers take alternate routes such as the Chicago Skyway, Interstate 57 and Halsted Street.
