Cubs fans and Wrigleyville residents can expect parking restrictions, street closings and other increased security measures surrounding the Cubs-Indians World Series games this weekend.

The city’s Office of Emergency Management and Communications announced Friday that a secondary perimeter will be in effect during the games to restrict incoming traffic to local residents only. Drivers will have to show a photo ID with proof of address to enter.

Parking restrictions will be in place on the following streets from noon Friday to 4 a.m. Monday, according to OEMC:

  • Clifton, Seminary and Kenmore from Waveland to Grace;
  • Seminary from Newport to Eddy;
  • Cornelia from Wilton to Sheffield;
  • Grace from Wilton to Clark; and
  • Waveland from Wilton to Racine.

Daily parking restrictions between 5 p.m. and 6 a.m. will also be in place from Friday through Wednesday on the following streets:

  • Webster from Sheffield to Bissell;
  • Lincoln from Webster to Fullerton;
  • Division from State to Dearborn;
  • Hubbard from State to LaSalle;
  • Wells from North to Division; and
  • Kinzie from State to Clark.

Parking on Waveland between Fremont and Halsted will be restricted until 5 p.m. Friday, OEMC said. Street closures will be put into effect “when deemed necessary” on Clark between Irving Park and Belmont, and on Addison between Halsted and Racine.

Truck traffic will be prohibited within a one-block radius of Wrigley Field after 3 p.m. on game days, and police will conduct security checks within a two-block radius, OEMC said.
