CHICAGO — Workers on Monday kicked off a roughly three-month street resurfacing project targeting the 0.7-mile stretch of Milwaukee Avenue between Albion Avenue and Elston Avenue in Norwood Park, state transportation officials announced.
While work is underway, drivers should expect "temporary daytime lane closures" during "non-peak travel times," with a narrower supply of on-street parking spots, according to the announcement released Monday.
In addition to re-paving Milwaukee, workers will repair "existing curb and drainage structures" and update pedestrian crossings to ensure that they're accessible to people with disabilities.
The project is set to be finished this summer, officials said.
