Chicago’s two seasons–winter and construction–collide today at Ravenswood/Cornelia/Wolcott, where the Department of Water Management is beginning work on a new sewer project. As the new sewer is connected to an existing sewer main at Damen and Cornelia, crews will set up a partial closure and detour of Damen at Cornelia, from 9 a.m. this morning through at least February 17.
Northbound through traffic will be detoured at Belmont, via Belmont – Western – Addison; local traffic will still have access to the neighborhood. Southbound traffic will be restricted to the southbound curb lane. “No Parking” signs will be posted in the affected area until the work is completed.
