Public Input Requested for Lake Shore Drive Project

The North Lake Shore Drive (NLSD) Phase I Study is intended to improve traffic flow and mitigate flooding on the historic NLSD corridor between Grand Avenue and Hollywood Avenue. The Chicago and Illinois Departments of Transportation are seeking public input on the plans developed for revamping the drive. These include designs for lakefront trail and park access, transit improvements, and mitigation of environmental impacts due to climate change. For more about the project and to provide your feedback, click here. The deadline for responses is Nov. 9.

CDOT, Park District Issue Lakefront Flooding Report

In late January, assessment teams from Chicago’s Department of Buildings, Office of Emergency Management and Department of Transportation attempted to access and assess approximately 80 buildings to identify those most vulnerable to flooding. The majority of these buildings were private properties located in the 7th, 48th and 49th Wards. The goal was to provide information to enhance the City’s ability to respond effectively to future storms. You can access and download the report here.
