Transformers Filming Chaos Continues This Weekend

N. Michigan Ave. Closed From Wacker To Ontario

Optimus Prime and that a-hole Megatron continue to tie up traffic in Chicago as they film Transformers 3 here.

But this weekend, they really screw things up downtown by closing down the Mag Mile from Wacker Drive to Ontario. The impact of these street closings will push traffic onto surrounding streets and generally will make driving in this area hellish and chaotic.

Lower Michigan Ave. will also be closed to traffic.

Drivers will be diverted at Ontario St. and detoured to Clark St.  Ohio St. will be open to eastbound traffic at Michigan Avenue.

Acording to CDOT Michigan Avenue northbound traffic will be diverted at Randolph Street and detoured to Dearborn Street.  Lake St. , Upper East North Water St. and City Front Plaza Dr. all will be open to local traffic only.

These street closings and detours will continue throughout the entire weekend, with both streets re-opening at 5 AM Monday morning.

Perhaps the best advice we have is to stay the hell away from this part of the city.

Here’s a list of other street closings this weekend courtesy of CDOT.
