Final 2016 Edition: Wrigley Special Event Parking Restrictions

The last time there was a World Series home game at Wrigley Field
With the World Series coming to Wrigley Field this weekend, there are even more parking and pedestrian restrictions about to go into effect. While we are not half as affected as Wrigleyville is, restrictions will apply in Uptown's southwest corner of Irving Park and Clark. There will be additional restrictions on areas immediately south of Irving Park.

The Cubs' win on Wednesday night ensures that there will be three games played this weekend:
  • Friday, October 28, 7pm
  • Saturday, October 29, 7pm
  • Sunday, October 30, 7pm
The latest email from Tom Tunney of the 44th Ward says:

"Arterial streets between Belmont and Irving Park, and between Halsted and Racine will very likely be closed to vehicular and pedestrian traffic at the discretion of the Chicago Police and OEMC during these games. [...] Residents and their guests should be prepared to have IDs for access to some areas and all those coming down to the area to enjoy the local restaurants and bars need to be aware of the checkpoints as well."

Home Game Parking Restrictions. Beginning at noon on Friday, October 28th through Monday, October 31st at 4 a.m.: (UU Note: We are bolding the Uptown-adjacent areas.)
  • Clark – School/ Aldine to Irving (Both Sides)
  • Sheffield – Roscoe to Irving Park (Both Sides)  [UU Note: Sheffield is Sheridan Road when it meets Irving Park]
  • Addison – Halsted to Southport (Both Sides)
  • Addison – Southport to Ashland (North Side)
  • Racine – Roscoe to Grace/ Clark (Both Sides)**
  • Patterson – Racine to Clark (Both Sides)
  • Waveland – Racine to Clark (Both Sides)
  • Waveland – Fremont to Halsted (South Side ONLY Friday, October 28th)
  • Clifton, Seminary and Kenmore – Waveland to Grace (Both Sides)
  • Irving Park – Clark to Seminary (Both Sides)
  • Eddy – Clark to Racine (Both Sides)
  • Cornelia – Clark to Racine (Both Sides)
  • Newport – Clark to Racine (Both Sides)
  • Inner Lake Shore – Belmont to Addison (East Side)"
That should be it for the year. No more Wrigley concerts, no more Wrigley home games after October 30th. Park in peace as November rolls in.
