City officials say the dedicated, temporary bus lanes will improve
reliability and make social distancing easier for CTA customers. The lanes will be installed on 4.6 miles on Chicago Avenue, from Laramie to Ashland.
City officials have identified the first 45 miles of arterial streets scheduled to be resurfaced in 2019. In addition to a 1.45 mile stretch of Austin Boulevard, about 1 mile of a few other streets in Austin — Long, Cortez, Iowa – Division/Central — also are on the paving list.
