Clark Street Bridge Repairs Start at 9am on Feb. 6

February 2, 2017

The Chicago Department of Transportation (CDOT) today announced that, beginning after morning rush on Monday, Feb. 6, repairs needed on the Clark Street Bridge over the Chicago River will close all but one lane of traffic and close either the east or west sidewalk, starting with the southwest quadrant of the sidewalk.

This project makes repairs to the road decks and sidewalks across the bridge span; the project is expected to be completed by late August.  Throughout the construction work at least one lane of traffic will be open and the eastern or western sidewalk will be passable.

Motorists traveling southbound on Clark and seeking to avoid delays should turn west on Grand to southbound Wells and then eastbound on Wacker back to Clark.  Alternately, motorists can travel eastbound on Illinois to southbound State and then west on Wacker back to Clark.  CTA expects to continue to use Clark Street for its regularly scheduled bus service.
