Walk Crooked Lombard

Lombard’s famous crooked stretch between Larkin and Leavenworth is being closed to automobiles on weekends through July 13 as part of a pilot project. The city acted in response to local residents’ complaints about traffic. Though the test plan allows taxis, pedestrians, and local traffic to use the twisty street — known as “the world’s crookedest street” — the basic ban will give officials an opportunity to see if it should recur or be made permanent.
