LINCOLN SQUARE — A roadwork project on Lincoln Avenue is a "go" now that Illinois has a budget.
Crews are set to begin resurfacing the stretch between Leland and Foster, as well as making repairs and improvements to the sidewalk, according to the Illinois Department of Transportation.
A spokeswoman for the department confirmed the work was among the $250 million in planned construction projects that would have been shut down or postponed if state legislators had failed to pass a budget at the end of June.
Although signs indicated construction on Lincoln would start Tuesday, equipment was still being staged.
Motorists and pedestrians should be prepared for intermittent lane and sidewalk closures.
Work is expected to be completed by the end of summer, according to officials.
All signs point to construction starting soon. [DNAinfo/Patty Wetli]
