    The city of Chicago is coming down with Bears Fever, and even the local tollways are getting in on the act as the game with the Philadelphia Eagles approaches.

    On Friday, signs along Illinois Tollway roads were emblazoned with a new message of support for the Bears: “Buckle Up, and Bear Down!”

    Numerous other Chicago institutions are doing their part to celebrate the Bears as well, as several buildings, including Soldier Field, Willis Tower, and the Wrigley Building are lighting up with blue and orange lights this weekend.

    The Bears have also installed ice sculptures around the city, but warm temperatures could end up impacting them in the run-up to the game.
