The summer season is beginning to wind down, but there is still plenty to do. Wizard World Comic Con is this weekend in Rosemont, and there’s the Chicago Triathlon which, even if you’re not participating, will affect traffic downtown and along the lake. As Lauren Lapka reminds us, no matter what your plans may be, the Traffix Chicago app can help you avoid delays as you drive.
