Driving Directions to Rush

Ashland Avenue construction alert

One of the two southbound lanes of Ashland Avenue between Van Buren and Flournoy streets will be shut down through late October as the city of Chicago replaces part of the water main line. Although one southbound lane will remain open — along with both northbound lanes — we expect some traffic delays. We recommend using the routes below to reach Rush destinations on Harrison Street, including the main parking garage and Professional Building.

Recommended routes during construction

  • If you are traveling eastbound on the Eisenhower Expressway (I-290): Exit at Damen Avenue, proceed south to Harrison Street. Then turn east on Harrison and continue to your destination.
  • If you are traveling westbound on the Eisenhower Expressway (I-290): Exit at Damen onto Van Buren Street and follow to Damen. Turn south on Damen to Harrison. Then turn east on Harrison and continue to your destination.
  • If you are traveling southbound on Ashland Avenue: Turn west on to Van Buren and follow to Damen. Turn south on Damen to Harrison. Then turn east on Harrison, and continue to your destination.
  • If you are traveling northbound on Ashland Avenue: Turn west on Flournoy Street, and follow to Paulina Street. Turn north on Paulina, and continue to Harrison. Depending on your destination, you will turn east to the main parking garage or west to the Professional Building.
  • Congress Parkway: We strongly recommend that patients avoid Congress Parkway during this roadwork. While cars now will be able to turn south onto Ashland Avenue (or proceed east on Congress), we expect delays and backups at the intersection.
  • You can also view these recommendations on a printable Rush map.
