Maybe someone was planning to nap on the highway?..
Drivers traveling in the inbound lanes of the Eisenhower Expressway (I-290), yesterday morning (April 28th) had to contend with several mattresses on the roadway. Multiple vehicles were seen driving around the obstacles, which blocked the center lanes.
Eventually a driver stopped his car and got out to begin dragging the mattresses to the side of the road, and he was soon joined by two other drivers. Together the drivers moved the mattresses to the left shoulder. It’s not clear where the mattresses came from.
