Peter, you're not wrong: I saw that resurfacing under way just yesterday afternoon.

Also, some of that nasty concrete patches on Damen have been paved over. Good.

Dickens is a great route westbound through Lincoln Park. It's wide and low traffic because motor vehicles can't go through Oz Park, but we can. Belden is a very good alternative to Webster, going east.  It gets a little more hectic than Dickens because it's narrower, there are no forced turn-offs for cars, and many LP/DePaul drivers use it as an eastbound route to avoid Fullerton, but it's still very good.

Is Dickens a good ride westbound? Otherwise, I went Clybourn/Southport/Clark back and it wasn't too bad.

California is being repaved from Diversey to just south of Elston. It is a short stretch but does pass under the expressway and is good to note. Looking forward to a smoother surface in that area.

Take two. The sewer work is completed, new asphalt laid down, and this morning a crew was striping the last part that had not been striped.

I'll take that back. What looked like some minor work at Southport and Waveland has turned into a big scale sewer main replacement. Funny how the city manages to do that.

The rest of the stretch seems to be in good shape.

Oh sweet. I've been detouring a bit for that part for the past month or so for my commute home.

Southport between Addison and Irving Park is nearly complete with new asphalt northbound. On Southport south of Lincoln the repaving job started this morning

Wells between Chicago and North is still under construction. Last year, the water main was replaced. Earlier this year, the sidewalks were made ADA compliant, and now they are replacing the man hole covers and sewer grates.

It may be a while before repaving happens and the bike lanes get upgraded.

RE: California- it's now rough grooved surface from Addison to Elston, as of last night. Again, totally rideable with caution.

There have been some significant improvements lately on Southport and other streets, where concrete is now paved over.

Watch for (much-needed) resurfacing on Clark thru Andersonville (near Foster, I think). Rough, grooved surface, lane closure, uneven pavement etc.  

Ravenswood is again passable from Belmont to Rogers Park. There's still some steel stacked up for the continuing work on the Metra Tracks, but no longer a detour as of last night.

I work in that neighborhood and have been taking Orleans northbound--much nicer until they finish Welles.

How 'bout Ravenswood west of the Metra tracks? All done?

When did that start? I rode by there this morning and saw nothing to this effect?

How long is the resurfacing on Clark? I might need to detour when I head up this weekend.
