CHICAGO – The Chicago Department of Transportation (CDOT) today announced the start of a resurfacing project on Dearborn from Monroe to Polk Streets that will reduce vehicle traffic to one lane for the next four to six weeks. The two-way bike lane on Dearborn will be maintained throughout the project, although its location may move, and a temporary two-way bike lane will be established in the western most travel lane.
There are extensive utility structures in the existing bike lane that required creating a temporary bike lane. Following the resurfacing work, green pavement markings will be applied to the bike lane so that it matches the section that was recently upgraded north of Monroe. The project will also add red pavement markings for the bus lane.
Vehicle drivers are advised to take alternate northbound routes in the area to avoid delays. Drivers are also urged to use caution and be on the lookout for workers and construction equipment in the work zone.
