Lombard Resurfacing To Disrupt Traffic

July 13, 2009|By Robert Little

Crews will begin a road-resurfacing project on Lombard Street on Wednesday that will cause lane closures and lead to downtown traffic delays until completion in late fall, the city Department of Transportation announced.

Workers expect to keep at least three lanes of traffic open during the first construction phase, between Light and President streets, and at least two lanes open during the later phase, between Light Street and Martin Luther King Boulevard. Parking restrictions and extended work hours will be used to reduce congestion, but officials encouraged drivers to plan for longer commutes and to consider alternative transportation.

The city is planning to implement periodic parking restrictions on Fayette Street during construction to help minimize congestion.
