The party’s over. Almost.

Lingering longer than a hangover from the weekend are Lollapalooza street closures, which will run through Thursday, in part because of the take down of equipment and the massive stages. The Chicago Park District will have a better idea of the damage done to Grant Park after the equipment is off the fields, said Jessica Maxey-Faulkner, park district spokeswoman. Under the agreement with the city, concert promoter C3 Presents is responsible for the clean-up bill.

From the Office of the Mayor, here’s the list of street closures and openings:

•. Columbus Drive from Monroe to Roosevelt is expected to re-open to vehicular traffic by Monday at 4:00 p.m.

• Balbo from Columbus to Lake Shore Drive will be closed through Thursday, August 8 at 4:00 p.m.

• Jackson from Columbus to Lake Shore Drive will be closed through Wednesday, August 7 at 4:00 p.m.

• Balbo from Michigan Ave to Columbus will be closed through Wednesday, August 7 at 4:00 p.m.

• Congress Parkway from Michigan to Columbus will be closed through Wednesday, August 7 at 4:00 p.m.

• Jackson from Michigan Avenue to Columbus will be closed through Wednesday, August 7 at 4:00 p.m.
