Lawndale News Chicago's Bilingual Newspaper - Business

Mayor Rahm Emanuel announced that two City departments in charge of roadway resurfacing – the Chicago Department of Transportation (CDOT) and the Department of Water Management (DWM) – have identified the first 135 miles of streets that are planned for resurfacing this year toward the goal of at least 275 miles of repaving for the entire year. Paving work is expected to start in mid-April when the asphalt plants open for the 2018 construction season. Since Mayor Emanuel took office, CDOT, DWM and private utilities have resurfaced more than 1,850 miles of streets and alleyways, more than one third of the City’s 4,600 miles of streets. Following are some of the main arterial routes that are slated for resurfacing by CDOT so far in 2018:

• Stony Island Avenue from S. Doty Avenue to E. 122nd Street (2.4 miles)
• South Chicago Avenue 67th Street to 79th Street (1.4 miles)
