I drove south out the bottom of old Cherry Street at Lake Shore Blvd for the first time in a long time. They had just removed the pylons and opened it up on Saturday morning. Could not drive north up old Cherry street from Lake Shore blvd. But maybe that has been opened up since. It's funny Google Maps still shows both directions close, but I definitely drove it southbound open on Saturday morning.
I live at that intersection and I have noticed that when the gridlock is insane on Lake Shore that some extremely frustrated drivers will occasionally move the pylons out of the way and drive up Cherry under the bridge Good move to avoid being trapped idling in your car on wb Lake Shore for hours behind 3 lanes of stopped traffic trying to merge onto the wb Gardiner at Jarvis.
Not sure if that is what happened in this case - it's closed off today.
