The Chicago Department of Transportation announced it will be getting a jump start on the re-paving of beat-up roads this year.
Monday morning the city released 55 miles of streets that are targeted for repairs that include patching up the annoying potholes that plague Illinois drivers. The early start for the construction is thanks to a relatively mild winter.
Among the first 55 miles of arterial streets that will be resurfaced this year are the following:
- Martin Luther King Drive from Cermak Road to 37th St. (1.9 miles)
- Martin Luther King Drive from 87th St. to 95th St. (1 mile)

- S. Michigan from 103rd St. to 111th St. (1 mile)
- 43rd St. from State Street to Cottage Grove (1 mile)
- Harrison St. from Kedzie to Damen (1.5 miles)
