The Chicago Transit Authority (CTA) will begin repair work on the Davis St. CTA viaduct starting Monday, May 20, with work continuing through June 10. The area affected by the work will be Davis Street, between Benson Ave. and Elmwood Ave. While progress sometimes comes with inconveniences, the CTA will do their best to keep them to a minimum. The work includes repairs to the north and south abutments of the CTA viaduct over Davis St. and there will be some noise while the work is being performed.
Work will run from 7 a.m. to 7 p.m., Mondays through Fridays and from 8 a.m. to 5 p.m. on Saturdays. During work hours, vehicle traffic will be maintained. Parking on Davis Street will be restricted on either side of the viaduct’s abutment under repair. Sidewalk access will be narrow and may be intermittently redirected during material handling. There will be flaggers assisting pedestrians and traffic at all times during the working hours.
If residents have any questions or concerns about the work activity, they can contact Ryan Mouw, CTA Government and Community Relations, Senior Government Officer, at 312/681-2751 or at firstname.lastname@example.org.
