UPTOWN — Portions of Marine Drive will be resurfaced beginning this week, aldermen said in emails to Uptown residents Friday.

"Resurfacing is starting on Marine Drive between Lawrence and Foster Avenues. The plan is to begin with the replacement of the ADA crosswalks, as early as this week," said Ald. Harry Osterman (48th) Friday.

First the asphalt will be removed, then underlying structures will be inspected and raised if needed. Utilities are then reinstalled and curbs are repaired. The street will then be resurfaced with new asphalt. The process should take about two weeks, the alderman said.

"All work is weather permitting, and there will be traffic delays in the work zone area. Please adhere to all parking restrictions," Osterman said.

Marine Drive from Montrose Avenue to Foster Avenue will also be resurfaced, said Ald. James Cappleman (46th).

"Work will include ADA sidewalk improvements, curb and gutter removal and replacement, bus pad construction, milling and paving the existing asphalt pavement, and striping," Cappleman said via email. "Temporary 'no parking' signs will be installed and will restrict parking during working hours, while adhering to rush hour restrictions, for the completion of the work."

All work on this corridor is scheduled to be completed by December 1, he said.
