Police reported that a number of cars were stalled or abandoned on ramp approaches of the outer drive and the city's expressways. But eventually these, or most of them, were pushed or pulled out of the way. j More than 500 trucks and crews of the city, county and state highway departments and the Chicago Transit -Authority, 'worked more than 12 hours plowing and.salting in the city and suburban areas.
