LINCOLN PARK — Nighttime traffic on Fullerton Avenue will be down to one lane for the rest of the week as the Lincoln Common development installs new storm sewers.
The development issued a public reminder Monday that the installation of a new storm service sewer under Fullerton will force traffic down to one lane between Orchard and Burling streets nightly from 7 p.m. to 4 a.m. Wednesday and Thursday, with work expected to be completed Friday.
Ald. Michele Smith (43rd) likewise warned residents Tuesday.
The Lincoln Common development has issued regular updates on construction and recently installed cranes for both of two towers to occupy the former Children's Memorial Hospital site on the triangular lot between Fullerton, Orchard and Lincoln Avenue.
Ultimately, the ambitious development is planned to include 94,000 square feet of retail space, 538 apartments, 40 luxury condominiums, a 47,000-square-foot boutique office building, a parking garage with 850 spaces, a 149-room senior living facility and more than an acre of open space.
It's expected to be completed within two years.
