The expressways were peppered with accidents Tuesday morning as typical rush-hour traffic returned to the Chicago area after the NATO summit.
Lake Shore Drive and area expressways were open as of Tuesday morning, though they were still plagued with regular, everyday gridlock, according to police.
Portions of the Stevenson Expressway and Lake Shore Drive had been closed for foreign dignitaries traveling back and forth from downtown hotels to the NATO summit at McCormick Place.
Traffic on the inbound Dan Ryan was slow Tuesday morning due to a multi-vehicle accident near Roosevelt Road, state police said, but they did not immediately have additional details on that crash.
There were no serious injuries reported in any of the accidents as of about 8:45 a.m., according to police and fire officials.
