Traffic Advisory: Going to see the Kratt Brothers on Saturday, August 23 or Sunday, August 24? We are expecting good crowds for the event, so please consider riding your bicycle, carpooling, or taking public transportation to avoid delays. Also, traffic has been reduced to one lane on 1st Avenue due to construction. Please plan accordingly and consider taking alternate routes. You can get to the zoo by taking the Brookfield Zoo Express Bus, Pace Bus Route 331, or the Metra! Visit our Public Transportation section for more information on Pace and Metra.
