Motorists sought to avoid DuSable Lake Shore Drive on Wednesday afternoon, as a confluence of congesting events snarled traffic on the roadway.

According to Total Traffic, the center three lanes of the southbound side of the roadway were closed for several hours due to buckled pavement, which reportedly damaged multiple cars, according to authorities.

In addition, stop-and-go traffic was reported between 18th Street and Chicago Avenue on the northbound side of the roadway, and between North Avenue and Chicago Avenue on the southbound side due to the Chicago Fire FC game against Inter Miami on Wednesday night.

Traffic continued to be backed up on the Stevenson following the re-opening of lanes, according to Total Traffic.
