Try any way you can. Saturday I came from Wisconsin on I-90 through Chicago and it was one of the worst roads I traveled this summer. To boot the toll on the I-90 skyroad was $16.80 for MH and toad plus all the additional tolls. The road had construction for about 40 continuous miles with radar traps set up. My advise find another route even if it means going out of your way.

Stay on 80 out of the rightmost lane and you will be fine. Not any other options that are better.

Try going through at about 3:00 A.M. No really I don't think there is a way around it. We went through there in June and it was terrible. Now I see why Illinois has one of the highest traffic fatality rate in the country.

No it does not, it's one of the lowest. Deaths per 100,000 population.

We went through Chicago mid-day last year and it really wasn't to bad.
We did drive around the toll booth on a alternate route but really wasn't worth it. IMO
