Hollywood Avenue Traffic to be Affected by ComEd Advance Utility Relocation Work

June 10, 2019

Utility work is necessary to complete ahead of beginning CTA’s Red and Purple Modernization (RPM) Phase One Project; work will require occasional lane shifts, closures through July 3

The Chicago Department of Transportation (CDOT) and the Chicago Transit Authority today announced that ComEd utility work beginning today at 1100 to 1194 W. Hollywood Avenue will affect vehicular and pedestrian traffic on and near Hollywood Avenue.

ComEd is performing advance utility work ahead of the start of major construction of the CTA’s Red and Purple Modernization (RPM) Phase One Project. Utility lines and equipment are being relocated so the CTA can fully rebuild new Red and Purple Line track structure and stations between Lawrence and Bryn Mawr. The utility work on Hollywood began Monday, June 10 and will continue through Wednesday, July 3. Impacts include:

  • Lane shifts and closures in the work area – traffic restricted to one lane in each direction between Magnolia and Winthrop
  • Occasional sidewalk closures
  • The entrance to the alley west of Winthrop Avenue south of Hollywood will be closed June 10-July 3 (Note: The alley itself will remain open and can only be accessed from the south via Bryn Mawr Avenue)
  • Oversized vehicles will be detoured to West Bryn Mawr Avenue

CTA’s RPM construction activity notices are posted in the community where the work is taking place and online at transitchicago.com/rpm/preconstruction. For more information about RPM, visit transitchicago.com/rpm.
