Sun-Times: Pfleger plans to shut down Dan Ryan on July 7 by marching on roadway

Via Chicago Mag
Saw this in the news feeds over at the Capitol Fax blog on Monday. Tweet with link to article below and a quick excerpt
On July 7 at 10 a.m., Pfleger plans to lead a group down the Dan Ryan’s northbound entrance ramp at 79th Street and walk about a mile and a half before exiting at the Marquette Road/67th Street exit ramp.

Pfleger said several people in positions of power, he wouldn’t say who, have tried to dissuade him from marching down the highway — to no avail.

Ample notice of the demonstration will hopefully allow motorists to avoid the area, he said.

It’s unclear how many people will be joining him. Pfleger said he’s received interest from people as far away as Naperville.
He's doing this on a Saturday. Shouldn't be a heavy traffic day though guaranteed if he did this during the week, this would be very risky PR-wise.
