Chicago expressways

Expressway information is grouped according to travel direction through the Chicago area from the Loop (downtown), or from the city limits if a route does not originate in the Loop. This provides a general sense of navigation, but it violates the laws of expressway numbering. For example, I-90/94 is designated as an east-west route, but in Chicago it's actually a due south route. Chicagoans usually speak of heading south on the Dan Ryan, not "west".
