DOWNTOWN — It's another sign of summer: closed streets around Grant Park for Lollapalooza. 

The city has started closing streets in and near Chicago's premier park in advance of the massive four-day music festival starting Aug. 3. 

Jackson Boulevard has been closed from Columbus to Lake Shore drives, and Balbo Drive from Columbus to Lake Shore has also been closed. The stretch of Balbo will remain closed till Aug. 10. 

Full Lolla-related street closures will begin at 8 p.m. Monday, a change that is sure to complicate many Downtown commutes. Stay tuned for any updates.

This year's Lollapalooza headliners include Chicago's own Chance The Rapper as well as Lorde, Blink 182, The xx and Migos.
