Five days of overnight Lake Shore Drive lane closures are scheduled to start Sunday on the South Side.

Lanes of South Lake Shore Drive between 18th and 57th streets will be closed from 10 p.m. to 6 a.m. July 10-14, according to a statement from the Chicago Department of Transportation. The closures are necessary to repair sections of the road that buckled in June because of extreme heat.

All entrance and exit ramps, and at least one lane of traffic will remain open in each direction throughout the repair process, CDOT said.
