LSD Reopened After Pavement Problems

By Staff in News on Jul 6, 2010 2:20PM

The south-bound lanes on Lake Shore Drive between Roosevelt and the Stevenson Expressway were reopened early this morning following a closure last night due to some buckled pavement. Flowers and grass weren't the only thing wilting in yesterday's heat as chunks of pavement along the road near 18th street buckled, forcing the closure. There's no word on the cost of the repair, but CDOT workers got the road patched up overnight so this morning's rush hour would go smoothly. The buckling occurred late yesterday afternoon, forcing closure of the south-bound lanes from around 6 p.m. to just after 1 a.m.
