City, NASCAR Chicago Announce Month-Long Street Closures Ahead of July Event

The inaugural NASCAR Chicago Street Race will have residents navigating street closures and parking restrictions around Grant Park for more than a month this summer, reported the Chicago Tribune. Closures will begin with parking restrictions in part of the park June 2, according to a traffic plan made public by the city Monday.  

Over the following weeks, traffic lanes and entire streets will close around the park, including along DuSable Lake Shore Drive and Michigan Avenue, until all roads reopen by July 15, the Tribune reported

The closures will begin as the city sets up grandstands, fences and hospitality suites for the race and entertainment event over July 4 weekend. City officials said access will remain open to the Museum Campus, Buckingham Fountain, the Lakefront Trail and nearby homes and businesses during setup and the event. They’re encouraging the use of alternate streets during the closures.
