3-week detour from Lower Wacker to Lake Shore starts Monday

CHICAGO (STMW) - Roadwork will close a downtown ramp from Lower Wacker to Lake Shore Drive for three weeks starting Monday morning.

The ramp from eastbound Lower Wacker to southbound Lake Shore will close before the morning rush Monday for a rehabilitation project, according to a statement from the Chicago Department of Transportation. The ramp to northbound Lake Shore from eastbound Lower Wacker will remain accessible.

During the closure, which is expected to last about three weeks, traffic from Lower Wacker will be detoured south along Columbus and east on Randolph to Lake Shore, CDOT said.

From Upper Wacker, the detour will direct traffic south on Columbus, west on East South Water Street, south on Stetson, east on Lower Lake, south back onto Columbus and east on Randolph to Lake Shore, according to CDOT.

The ramp from westbound Lower Wacker to Upper Wacker, which was previously closed as part of the same project, has been reopened, according to CDOT.
