Coming from the O’Hare? To go straight to the conference take the blue line subway to Halsted/UIC stop. To go to the hotel, take the blue line to Washington and walk or taxi it – less than a mile (and our taxis are cheap). See the map on the accommodations page.
Also for drivers – the Morgan Street exits from, and bridge over, I290 is closed. As far as can tell that is the only problem caused by the roadworks.
