This is a weird question for anyone who knows Chicago's downtown district really well. I'm wondering if you know how many lanes, including shoulders, in both directions, Lake Shore Drive has on it's big N/NW stretch from Navy Pier up to the Oak Street Beach. Thanks!!!

One of my professors told me that way back in the cold war there were Nike Missiles mounted along L.S.D. to shoot down the Soviet bombers that were to fly in from over the lake and bomb the city if a war ever erupted.
