STREET CLOSURE ANNOUNCEMENT 
3700 BLOCK OF N. BROADWAY ST. 

Beginning Thursday, March 30, 2017 the 3700 block of N. Broadway will undergo a full street closure from W. Grace to W. Waveland. This closure is expected to last until April 9, 2017. 

The closure is the result of ongoing replacement of 100-year-old water mains in the ward, BES #1601167, being completed by NPI, Construction Co. 

When completed, this process will make water service more reliable for residents, businesses and fire protection while reducing the need for costly and inconvenient repairs.  At this time, this is the only closure expected on N. Broadway.
