Lake Shore Drive Closure

Lake Shore Drive was shut down Tuesday evening between Hollywood Blvd. and 67th Street. due to blizzard conditions according to Chicago Fire Department News Affairs. The closure is only temporary, allowing crews to clear roadways for safer travels during the harsh weather.

“The goal is to clear traffic and then plow and clear the surface,” said Roderick Drew, Office of Emergency Management and Communications spokesman.

Snow Command officials are hoping to reopen the Drive later Tuesday evening.
