Lanes of Lake Shore Drive to close for resurfacing

CHICAGO (STMW) - Two lanes of Lake Shore Drive in both directions are scheduled to close overnights this week for continued work on a four-week resurfacing project.

Beginning Monday, two lanes of North and South Lake Shore Drive between Grand and North avenues will close after evening rush hour for resurfacing overnights Monday through Thursday. Work on these two lanes will end before the morning rush hour, according to a statement from the Chicago Department of Transportation.

When work is scheduled for the portion of Lake Shore Drive between Walton and Michigan (the S curve), all lanes will be closed and traffic detoured via Michigan and Chicago, the statement said. The timing of the full closures, which will occur during two separate overnights, is dependent on weather and other factors.

Single-lane closures will also happen during the resurfacing project for pavement striping and work on the curb, shoulders and ramps, the statement said. Those closures are scheduled for 9:30 a.m. to 3:30 p.m. and overnight from 9 p.m. to 6 a.m. as needed.
