Update 7/29/22: Lincoln Ashland Belmont Streetscape


This project will increase safety for all road users, enhance walkability, and support economic development. Improvements include full-width resurfacing, new lighting and traffic signals, street trees, community identifiers, the reconstruction of three intersections, widened sidewalks, new decorative crosswalks, and a larger pedestrian plaza space with seating, street trees, landscaping, and pavers.

The project consists of improvements along Lincoln Avenue from Wellington Avenue to Melrose Street, Ashland Avenue from Barry Avenue to School Street, and Belmont Avenue from Ashland Avenue to Southport Avenue and is expected to be completed in Summer 2023.

Throughout construction, the streets will remain open to motorists and pedestrians and access to businesses will be maintained. In order to keep the street open to traffic, parking will not be allowed in the area of active construction. In addition, there will be periodic parking restrictions on some side streets. Please review all signs on the block before parking at length.

The CTA routes will not be affected. For more information, please call the CTA information hotline at: (312) 836-7000.

Construction review meetings will be held weekly when construction is under way. The meetings are open to the public and provide residents and businesses the opportunity to ask questions and coordinate concerns regarding construction. The dates, location, and time will be determined prior to construction start.
