BEVERLY — Summer road construction projects in Beverly will require the extended closure of portions of 103rd Street, followed by a brief closure of parts of 107th Street.
Here's the details of all three projects:
• The biggest project that will impact drivers in Beverly is a water main replacement project on 103rd Street between Western and Seeley avenues.
That said, the westbound lane on 103rd Street has remained open since crews began work on July 11. However, drivers should expect a complete shutdown of the street as the project ramps up, the staffer said.
Pedestrians will be able to continue to use 103rd Street, though crews are only required to keep one side of the sidewalk open during construction, she said.
The Chicago Transit Authority has also rerouted buses that use this section of 103rd Street. Eastbound buses will use 107th Street as a detour, while westbound buses will use 99th Street, according to the alderman's office.
• After the 103rd Street project is complete, 107th Street will be closed for several days while it is resurfaced between Western and Hale avenues, the aldermanic staffer said Monday.
• Finally, turning lanes are being added in both directions on 115th Street at the intersection of Pulaski Road in Mount Greenwood, according to IDOT spokeswoman Gianna Urgo.
This project was set to begin June 1, but was delayed in order to relocate utilities. This effort to move conduits will continue through the end of the month, Urgo said via email on Monday.
Temporary signals were installed and turned on July 8. The project remains on schedule and should be complete by late November, she said.
"Please keep in mind that all work is weather dependent," Urgo said.
