N. Sheridan Road Resurfacing

W. Bryn Mawr north to W. Sheridan Rd, W. Sheridan Rd west to N. Winthrop AveWeek of 7/12/2021Concrete sidewalk, ADA ramp, curb & gutter removal on the east side from Bryn Mawr to Devon (7/12, 7/13, 7/14)Pouring concrete sidewalks ADA ramp, curb & gutter on the east side from Bryn Mawr to Devon (7/14, 7/15, 7/16)N. Clark St. Resurfacing Project
From W Lawrence Ave to W Edgewater Ave

N Clark St will be resurfaced from W Lawrence Ave to where N Clark St meets N Ashland Ave at W Edgewater Ave. Because N Clark St was resurfaced between Foster and Bryn Mawr  back in 2019 for a water main project, this section of N Clark will not be resurfaced, but this section of N Clark will be getting new ADA ramps at the crosswalks, sidewalk work, and, if needed, new curb & gutters to address any drainage issues on the street. Resurfacing will then pick up at W Bryn Mawr and continue north to W Edgewater Ave. 

Crews are expected to start the concrete work for the ADA ramps and crosswalks today, 7/12, on the east side of N Clark St in the 47th Ward at W Lawrence Ave and will be making their way to the 48th Ward in the coming days. Once this project gets closer to our ward, we will have more updates.

Hollywood Avenue will be closed between Broadway and Winthrop this Friday, July 16, 8pm through Monday, July 19, 5am. Crews will need a full closure of the street to perform full demolition of the CTA viaduct. Unless there is ongoing construction on the street, one sidewalk will remain open with flagger assistance as needed. Any residents that need to access the alley who live south of Hollywood Avenue will have to go to W. Bryn Mawr Avenue and any residents who live north of Hollywood Avenue will have to go to W. Thorndale Avenue. Detour signage will be placed throughout the ward specifically on our main thoroughfares Ridge, Sheridan, Hollywood, Clark, and DuSable Lake Shore Drive. Click here to read the full construction activity notice
