Chicago's Wacker Drive

David Schaper reports on the official reopening of Chicago's storied Wacker Drive, home to large rodents, cabbies, delivery trucks and smart commuters. The road has two levels, surface and lower, and threads through the city's downtown. The new road, following a two-year facelift, is intended to relieve gridlock.
