Lane closures for sewer work in the Roscoe Village neighborhood started Friday, restricting traffic for at least a week near the intersection of Western and Roscoe, according to the Chicago Department of Transportation.

Traffic in both directions on Roscoe will not be able to make left turns onto Western for between seen and 10 days, transportation officials said.One lane of Western will remain open in each direction, but traffic will become “restricted.”

Driverscan travel west on Roscoe and take Cambell south to Belmont, or go east on Roscoe to Damen and then south to Belmont.

The sewer work is part of the larger reconstruction of Western Avenue, which aims to open a second lane of traffic on Western Avenue this fall, CDOT said.
