The posted Lakefront Trail detour remains in effect during the duration of Phase I of the project. The east sidewalk on northbound lower Lake Shore Drive will remain closed between Illinois Street and Grand Avenue while work continues adjacent to Lake Point Tower.
There are currently no long-term closures in effect. Drivers can expect occasional temporary lane & ramp closures on Illinois Street, Grand Avenue, and upper & lower Lake Shore Drive as work continues in this area.

Lane closures will be in place on Illinois Street and Grand Avenue at Lake Shore drive from July 6, 2016 through July 13, 2016 from approximately the hours of 10:00pm to 6:00am, nightly, to sandblast the bottom of the concrete flyover bridge deck.
