Original story, 11:30 a.m. Monday:
Traffic along North Avenue through Elmhurst was a gnarly mess all morning Monday, according to residents. A dispatch report requested police help at North and West, and a reader sent us this photo of North and Route 83 Monday.
But that's not the only place drivers are getting stuck. Construction backups, ongoing all summer, have caused traffic problems at all the main thoroughfares town: Butterfield, York, Lake, North and Route 83.
Does this construction season seem more problematic than others? Is it impacting your drive time to work? Let us know in the comments.
