I passed by you twice today my run takes me from Crest Hill IL passed Indy to exit 10 on 70 in Ohio and then back again.

TWIC:

Transportation Worker Identification Credential

Truck drivers who regularly pick up from or deliver to the shipping ports will often be required to carry a TWIC card.

Your TWIC is a tamper-resistant biometric card which acts as both your identification in secure areas, as well as an indicator of you having passed the necessary security clearance. TWIC cards are valid for five years. The issuance of TWIC cards is overseen by the Transportation Security Administration and the Department of Homeland Security.

Which way do you go?

I go 65 to 865 to 465 to 70 when the construction allows.

Coming back I am in the afternoon rush hour I take 70 straight to 65 and skip 465 as there is a ton of traffic on it.

Yea that’s where I hit it on 465. Complete standstill. It was right at 17:00 and trying to get back on 65 took forever.

The 465 is terrible from like 4 to 6-7pm almost from my experience, so much traffic getting on and off the interstate and people waiting until the last moment to merge across multiple lanes of traffic to make their exit, etc.

Interstate:

Commercial trade, business, movement of goods or money, or transportation from one state to another, regulated by the Federal Department Of Transportation (DOT).
