This was near the Riverside Bridge, East side in the westbound lanes.

Slow down and use caution while traveling.

As of the 2 PM hour, the snow is developing across the area from southwest to northeast, The consistently heaviest snow through 4 PM will be south of the Kankakee River, where area roads are already at least partially snow covered. To the north, the overall snow intensity will be lighter with occasional heavier bursts. Leave extra time to reach your destination this afternoon. Slow down and increase following distance when driving on snow covered roads.
