Lake Shore Drive construction complete

November 18, 2011 (CHICAGO)

The project created median openings for two emergency turn around areas; one is near Armitage, the other near Schiller.

The work is designed to prevent what happened during the February 2nd blizzard. Lake Shore Drive was shut down for 33 hours and more than 500 vehicles were stuck.

The project provides an escape route in case of another major snowstorm.
