CHICAGO BEARS RADIO -- WBBM Newsradio 780 "Traffic on the 8's"

Travelers headed to O’Hare International Airport on Labor Day September 3, 2018, and commuters in the area may be affected by another gun violence protest planned for the Chicago area — this time along I-190 near O’Hare International Airport.

The I-190 protest is scheduled to begin about 11:30 a.m. Labor Day Monday September 3, 2018 at Cumberland Avenue ramps east of O’Hare International Airport.

A citizens group of protesters is intending to shut down I-190 to protest violence in Chicago, officials advise.

At noon, the group plans to march down the ramp and head along the expressway to River Road, where they plant to attempt to cross the median and attempt to block both sides of the expressway and main thoroughfare into and out of O’Hare International Airport. The distance from Cumberland Avenue to River Road is about 1.3 mile.

The demonstration march is the third of marches related to protesting violence in Chicago; Two previous marches have included protests on Lake Shore Drive and the Dan Ryan Expressway earlier this city summer.

The Rev. Gregory Livingston also led a small group of protesters that shut down rush-hour traffic August 2, 2018 on Lake Shore Drive. Livingston says believes he can accomplish blockage with only 100 people.

Shutting down the nation’s second busiest airport …

“as an act of civil disobedience is not our end objective but rather a means to an end. Our demands are focused on the equitable distribution of resources and opportunities for all Chicago and the lack of — which has created our ‘Tale of Two Cities.’ We cannot talk about reducing the fruit of violence and ignore the tree of corruption that produces it.”

— Rev. Gregory Livingston on Facebook

Protesters led by the Rev. Gregory Livingston are seeking to shut down O’Hare to gain attention for the fight to end gun violence, segregation, and racism in the region.

Illinois State Police have stated that they expect that travel will not be interrupted, saying the demonstration is not expected to affect drivers accessing I-190 into O’Hare by the Tri-State Tollway or driving west on the Jane Addams Tollway (I-90), but that could change depending on the behavior of protest marchers.

Park Ridge Police Chief Frank Kaminski said travelers should be prepared for potential delays on the Kennedy Expressway. Park Ridge and Rosemont police will be assisting Illinois State Police in the area. Park Ridge police will be out near the Cumberland ramp to assist.

Alternate routes into the O’Hare International Airport are Mannheim Road to Bessie Coleman Drive to I-190 east of the planned protest; and River Road to Balmoral Avenue to O’Hare Way/West O’Hare Avenue to bessie Coleman Drive to I-190 east of the planned protest.
