Clean up efforts are underway on Chicago’s lakefront path after Friday's strong winds and high waves damaged portions of it.
Large slabs of asphalt have littered the path between Goethe and Oak Street.
As crews worked to clear the path of all the debris Monday, cyclists and joggers had to carefully maneuverer around the mess.
Wind gusts reached up to 67 miles per hour near the shore Friday and waves as high as 21 feet made their way to the path and onto Lakeshore Drive.
The Chicago Park District plans to finish clearing the debris today and will lay new asphalt tomorrow in the hardest hit spots, between Goethe and Oak and between 47th and 51st St.
The goal is to try and have this all back to normal by early next week.
As for how much these repairs will cost, the Park District says its mainly using in-house crews but doesn't yet know exactly what this will cost the city.
