Construction will begin next week on Garland Court in the Loop to reverse the flow of traffic from northbound to southbound to accommodate residents.

Beginning Monday, workers will prepare to reverse the flow of traffic on a one-block stretch of Garland Court between Randolph and Washington, according to a statement from the Chicago Department of Transportation.

Garland Court will be closed to traffic during working hours, but residents and those who work on the block will be allowed access. One lane will be open to allow traffic to exit garland onto Randolph, but drivers should expect short delays.

The construction will involve removing a concrete bump-out section of sidewalk at the north end of Randolph and Garland Court, and also adding new pavement striping and signage.

The reversal of traffic, which is expected to be put into effect at the end of August, is being carried out at the request of Ald. Reilly in order to accommodate residents.
