State law restricts the speed limit in Illinois highway construction zones to 45 mph–whether workers are present or not.

But according to an NBC 5 report, barely anyone actually obeys the law.

Cubs Host Last Two Night Games Of Season

Chicago Cub fans and Wrigleyville residents are breathing a sigh of relief this week.

Residents and drivers who frequent the area are glad Monday night and Tuesday night are the last two night games for the season.

While fans of the team are glad a dismal season will end on Wednesday, allowing them to officially say “wait ’til next year.”

The fifth place Cubs play the sixth place Houston Astros to close out the last three games.

If you assumed the season had already ended, please be advised that parking restrictions kick in at 5:00 PM and if you park on a residential street in most parts of Lakeview you can be ticketed and towed. First pitch is at 7:05 both Monday and Tuesday.

If you insist on driving to Wrigley, we suggest parking at the DeVry University lot and use the CTA shuttle bus to Wrigley.

Another great alternative is using SpotHero for locating choice parking spots around the friendly confines.
