The Department of Water Management will be installing a new main in W. Nelson Street, from N. Ravenswood Avenue to N. Ashland Avenue. This water main should be completed by the end of April with restoration in May 2014. Keep in mind, dates may change depending on weather and other factors.
Traffic will be allowed to flow outside of working hours. When working in the streets, traffic may be closed for safety reasons. You will be able to reach your home or business, even if it means putting a metal plate in place. Outside of working hours, a lane will be left open for local traffic only.
“No Parking” signs will be posted as needed, during work hours (7am-4pm). You are able to park outside of those hours, but they will have to insist that cars be moved by the start of the next workday.
If you have any other questions, please contact Assistant Water Management Commissioner Tom LaPorte at (312) 742-1021.
