The tearing up of Milwaukee Avenue

As if there weren't enough construction projects going on in the Chicago, the city decided to add Milwaukee Avenue to their list. They are planning on resurfacing Milwaukee from the Kennedy Expressway to North Avenue. The project is slated to start Monday, August 28th, give or take a week knowing the city, and is expected to take 40 days. So in other words, it might be wise to avoid Milwaukee and join the slow procession of traffic down either North or Division. Mind you, I'm only half complaining. I drive down Milwaukee frequently and there always seems to be a new patch or some other bump to help loosen the bolts on your car engine, so while my car appreciates it, my schedule hates it since it's going to take twice as long to get through the area.
