ROGERS PARK — Some of the neighborhood's "worst" streets are getting a facelift by the end of the year, Ald. Joe Moore said.
In all, 40 blocks will be resurfaced in the 49th Ward, including perhaps the most porous stretch of asphalt on Ridge Avenue, in front of UNO Rogers Park's campus and the former St. Scholastica Academy.
Other streets include Morse Avenue, between Sheridan Road and Wayne Avenue; Lunt Avenue, between Ashland Avenue and Clark Street; and Fargo Avenue, from Ashland to the lake.
"This will provide welcome relief to motorists and bicyclists alike who have been dodging potholes and enduring bumpy rides, especially since this year's brutal winter wreaked havoc on our streets," Moore said in an email to constituents Monday.
Moore said some work already has begun.
On Saturday, however, some residents were not given proper notice of street work and were wrongfully ticketed and towed by the city, he said, because "no parking" signs were posted late Friday for work that began 7 a.m. Saturday.
Moore said to contact his office at firstname.lastname@example.org or 773-338-5796 for help when contesting a ticket received over the weekend in one of the work areas.
