In July and August the family and I will be doing a cross-country road trip. On Tues, July 30, we will be heading from London, Ontario to Elgin, Il, taking I-94 to I-90. We'll probably be hitting the Chicago area right around rush-hour. I'm wondering if either a) anyone can suggest an alternate route that would enable us to drive around the worst of the traffic, or b) it would be preferable to take our time and aim to hit Chicago closer to 7pm.
Thanks in advance!
