It was a show stopping performance -- or, a traffic stopping one, anyway.
Drivers got an unexpected show as they waited for the Eisenhower Expressway to be reopened early Wednesday. Police were dealing with a woman who was dancing across the outbound lanes of the expressway, bringing traffic to a halt on the Far West Side early Wednesday.
State Police got a call of a woman dancing in the westbound lanes of I-290 near South Laramie Avenue at 3:19 a.m.
The dancer was safely apprehended and taken to Loretto Hospital for observation, Bukaczyk said.
All lanes were reopened by 3:40 a.m., according to the trooper, who said no accidents or injuries were reported.
