CHICAGO (CBS) — The resurfacing project on the north end of Lake Shore Drive is ahead of schedule, thanks to warm and dry weather.

The southbound lanes have been finished, said Chicago Department of Transportation spokesman Pete Scales.

Crews plan on starting the northbound lanes tonight.

The work is expected to be finished by the end of the week.

All four lanes in the sections between Sheridan and Foster and between Belmont and North are being resurfaced. The project is about three weeks ahead of schedule.

Meantime, work on the LSD entrance ramp at northbound Michigan Avenue and Oak Street begins today. The ramp will be closed until mid-November.

Drivers will be rerouted to inner Lake Shore Drive, between Oak Street and North Avenue.
