The Chicago Department of Transportation (CDOT) announced that resurfacing of North Lake Shore Drive between 
Grand and North Avenues will begin Monday, October 19th. 
All of the resurfacing, which is expected to take four weeks to complete, will take place over night and occur on weekdays (Monday through Thursday). Phase One of the project will close two lanes of northbound traffic between Grand and North Avenues. Preparatory work by the Department of Water Management has begun. 

Eastbound Diversey Closed from Seminary to Sheffield 
for Sewer Replacement

This major sewer project will run until about November 16.  Eastbound Diversey traffic is being detoured to Fullerton, so take another route to avoid traffic.  

Water Department 
Keeps You Up to Date

WaterALERT is a new system that allows residents to sign up to receive e-mail alerts on their mobile devices or home computers notifying them of any construction that will impact water service in their area.  

If your street is undergoing a water project, you'll get a letter describing the work with a Project ID.  You can register and receive ongoing email alerts about the project.

I joined my colleague Ameya Pawar (47th Ward) in testifying in front of the CTA Board on Wednesday to seek the reinstatement of the #11 bus.  Many of our businesses and constituents relied on this bus.  Bring it back!
