WEST RIDGE — A 1½-mile stretch of highly-trafficked Ridge Avenue is set to get a makeover next week.
Starting Tuesday, crews from the Illinois Department of Transportation will be working to resurface and re-strip Ridge Avenue from Devon to Fargo.
The project will also include making a parallel sidewalk more pedestrian-friendly, such as adding more sidewalk ramps for people with disabilities.
During construction, some lanes on Ridge will be closed and drivers who use the thoroughfare should expect delays, according to officials.
Work is expected to wrap up in the fall.
