Southbound Lake Shore Drive Closed To Vehicles Sunday Morning; Simonds Drive Closed Saturday Morning

The bike portion of the Chicago Triathlon will take place on Sunday morning, August 25th. The southbound lanes of Lake Shore Drive between Hollywood and Randolph will be closed for the event between 5am and noon. Northbound lanes will remain open.

Also, on Saturday, August 24th, Simonds Drive in Montrose Harbor will be closed between Montrose and Foster between 5am and noon in both directions. You can see all closures that will take place throughout the weekend here.

Be prepared for some extra traffic in the neighborhood, particularly on Sunday morning!

For 35 years, motorists and triathletes successfully shared the Drive in both directions. But in 2017, an uninsured 20-year-old driver grew impatient with the traffic slowdown and decided to ignore the traffic cones. She drove into the lane with the cyclists, and hit and injured two of them.

And that's why we can't have nice things.
