Storm’s Stall Spares Most of Region
Travellers navigated water, delays and detours Thursday from a storm that put some greater Chicago roads, including interstate highways, under water. Highways such as Bishop Ford and the Borman roadway experience lane closures. Indiana State Police Sergeant Ann Wojas said the ramp from I-80 westbound to southbound Indianapolis Boulevard experienced flooding Thursday afternoon. A sinkhole beneath a south Chicago road collapsed, leaving a pit large enough to hold three cars.
