Because Lower Wacker Isn't Scary Enough

chicagoist_2006_09_wacker.jpgWe're always slightly terrified to drive down through Lower Wacker. No matter how fast we're going, it always feels too fast, or we worry that some delivery truck is going to pop out of a hidden ramp and bash into us. It's like a video game. Well add another obstacle to that: two blocks of the Amazing Chicago Underground Tunnel of Death near Madison Street were shut down overnight when a water main broke and flooded it. Chicagoist isn't sure how many of its readers regularly venture down into the bowels of the West Loop, but if you have to today, plan ahead.
