N Clark St. Resurfacing Project
I am providing you with information regarding an arterial street resurfacing project in our neighborhood. This is part of our approach to renew our city's aging infrastructure. I want to be certain you are well informed about the project. You should know where to call if you have any questions or concerns.
Chicago Department of Transportation crews will soon be resurfacing N. Clark St. from Diversey to Addison. Furthermore, concrete crews will replace broken curb, gutter and non-ADA compliant sidewalk ramps. This project is expected to commence Thursday, October 4, 2012 (weather permitting).
We are coordinating with the Department of Transportation, and I have made it clear that crews need to put great importance on your convenience and the quality of life in this neighborhood throughout the duration of this project.
As you know, construction always involves some inconvenience, noise and dust. The Department of Transportation will do everything possible to minimize the inconvenience and noise, and will conduct themselves as good and thoughtful neighbors throughout the course of their work.
If you have questions or comments about the project, please feel free to contact Sougata Deb in my office at 773.525.6034 or Sougata.Deb@cityofchicago.org at any time.
Thank you for your understanding as this project proceeds.
Alderman Tom Tunney
