Around the Hood: 1200 Block of West Devon Closed on Sunday


Just a quick heads up in case you missed Alderman Moore’s announcement earlier today, we’ve included it below:

“I want to alert you to a street closure this Sunday, June 28th, in the 1200 block of W. Devon, from Broadway to Magnolia. The closure will begin Sunday at 6:00 a.m. and end Monday at 4:00 a.m.

The Carolyn Hedger Apartment building at 6400 North Sheridan Road is undergoing extensive renovation. Part of this renovation requires the installation of new air conditioning equipment on the roof of the building.

A large crane, which will lift the air conditioning equipment onto the roof, will be parked on Devon in front of the Carolyn Hedger building.

My office worked with 48th Ward Alderman Harry Osterman’s office to require the contractor to provide informational flyers to residents and businesses most immediately affected and post adequate signage advising motorists to seek alternative routes.

Electronic traffic signs advising motorists to seek alternate routes will be posted at Lake Shore Drive and Sheridan, Touhy and Sheridan, and Clark and Devon.

Westbound traffic on Devon will be routed north on Sheridan, west on Pratt and then south on Clark. Eastbound Devon traffic will have the option of detouring north on Clark to Pratt, with Pratt connecting to Sheridan, or south on Clark to Granville, with Granville connecting to Broadway.

Local traffic will be allowed east of Clark to Magnolia.

If you have any questions, please contact my office at or 773-338-5796.” –  Joe Moore
