Staff at Laurino's office sent this news blast out at 3:45 PM today, titled "Montrose Closure," emphasis mine.
It would be nice to know about street closures before they actually happen, but yah know, maybe that is a little bit too much to ask from your alderman. (What exactly do they do all day again?)"Montrose Avenue will be closed at Kildare (4300 West) for a sewer main connection, starting immediately, and will be reopened on June 5th. The detour is Montrose-Cicero-Irving Park-Pulaski.This is part of sewer reconstruction projects which will reduce flooding and reduce future maintanence needs. We apologize for any inconvenience in the interim. "
Traffic on the North Side is already terrible, and now this? Ugh. Get it together, Laurino.
