Drivers fed up with potholes on North Lake Shore Drive can look forward to a smoother ride.The state is releasing $4.5 million to resurface the section between Irving Park Road and Foster Avenue.

The potholes are so bad that the speed limit is not being raised from 40 to 45 miles per hour as it usually is for summer.

Spot repairs are set to begin in a couple of weeks. But the bulk of the project won't start until July or August.
