LOGAN SQUARE — Logan Square’s Armitage Avenue recently opened back up to two-lane traffic after a lengthy construction project, but the street will see more parking restrictions through the fall as city crews resurface the thoroughfare.

The Chicago Department of Transportation is poised to begin repaving Armitage Avenue between Milwaukee and Kedzie avenues next week, weather permitting, according to Ald. Daniel La Spata’s 1st Ward office.

As part of the project, crews are making American Disability Act improvements to the street’s sidewalks, curbs and drains, along with patching and milling the pavement, concrete bus pads and striping.

There will be temporary parking restrictions along the Armitage Avenue stretch during construction, according to La Spata’s office. The parking bans will only be in effect during working hours and will adhere to the city’s rush hour parking restrictions.

The resurfacing project comes just days after city crews wrapped up a prolonged water main construction project along Armitage Avenue between Kedzie and Western avenues.

Armitage Avenue was reduced to one-way traffic for eight months while crews replaced the street’s century-old water main, frustrating some neighbors and business owners.

The water main project was delayed by bad weather, supply chain disruptions and scheduling issues with utility companies, a city spokesperson previously said.

Repaving is slated to begin Sept. 27 and end Nov. 30, La Spata’s office said.

CDOT didn’t immediately respond to a request for comment.
