CHICAGO — The Lakefront Trail is closed Monday due to high waves.
The lakefront could see “large and battering waves” up to 16 feet tall, according to a lakeshore flood advisory from the National Weather Service. The waves are expected to erode the shoreline and create “dangerous conditions,” including flooding of low-lying roads and bike paths like the Lakefront Trail.
The advisory is in effect until 7 p.m. Monday.
In response, the city is closing the trail from Fullerton to North Avenue, North Avenue to Ohio Street and 47th Street to 51st Street due to the high waves, according to a news response. Underpasses at Oak Street, Chicago Avenue and Division Street are blocked.
The closures are in effect until further notice.
