TRAFFIC ALERT: HIGH WAVES CLOSE LANES, DELAY TRAFFIC ON NORTH BOUND LAKE SHORE DRIVE

High waves from Lake Michigan led to lane closures along Chicago’s Lake Shore Drive from North Avenue to Division Street.

Cars are moving slowly through the area from 1200 to 1500 North LSD, but were in a single-file line as waves crashed around the three lanes closest to the water. Emergency crews and trucks are blocking the lanes to traffic while they work to remove water off the road, city officials said.

ABC 7 Eyewitness News reporter Terrell Brown reports that northbound traffic is at a near-standstill on Lake Shore Drive at Oak Street, and that it took two hours to travel from Randolph to Lawrence.

Brown also reports that a light pole is blocking one southbound lane of Lake Shore Drive at Oak Street.
