Steve: I have made that trip a few times in the last few years for work. I took tollways to Buffalo and crossed over into Canada then took I think was the 400 from Niagra Falls Canada to Sarnia Ontario Canada and crossed back over into the United States via the Sarnia Ontario - Port Huron MI BlueWater Bridge. You then take I69 W until it turns into I 69 S. Stay on that to I94 then head west on I94 to Chicago. You miss all the traffic and construction in Detroit/Windsor and you will find many RV and state parks to stay in as you travel. and overall, I found that it was quicker.
Use google Maps etc and go NY to Niagra Falls, Niagra Falls to Sarnia Ontario/Port Huron MI (Blue Water Bridge to US). Then google from Port Huron MI to Chicago IL.
Note you will need passport and one other ID to cross Canada/US border and you need to make sure you have no firearms etc. You can check the web sites for Blue Water Bridge/Buffalo-Niagra bridge.
Good luck it is a long drive with some construction in Niagra Falls, but it is a good easy trip.
