Deep Tunnel Storm Water Management Project Begins Sept. 4

Starting Thursday, September 4, eastbound Lawrence will be closed from Milwaukee east to Cicero. Local traffic will be able to get through to Leclaire and the Kennedy Expressway, but the eastbound lanes will be closed to all traffic at Lavergne. The westbound lane will remain open.

Allow extra time, as traffic will be heavy in the area impacted. Please respect our neighborhoods by following the designated detour, which is south on Milwaukee, east on Montrose, and north on Cicero.

The closure will allow for the construction of a 230-foot drop shaft that will tie local sewers directly into the Deep Tunnel storm water management system. The closure should end by the end of November. This work should improve sewer drainage for thousands of homes in Jefferson Park.
