Bridge work to close LSD ramp to Stevenson on Tuesday

(Chicago)  A ramp from Lake Shore Drive to the Stevenson Expressway will be closed during the morning rush Tuesday for bridge repairs.

The closure of the ramp from northbound Lake Shore to southbound (I-55) will last from 6 a.m. to 3 p.m. Tuesday, according to the Illinois Department of Transportation.

A detour will take drivers to 18th Street, where they can turn around and take Lake Shore Drive back south to the expressway, IDOT said.

The closure will allow crews to make bridge repairs, according to IDOT. Motorists can expect delays and should allow extra travel time.
