Temporary Road Closure on Chicago Avenue

Dear friends,

The Chicago Avenue Bridge over the North Branch of the Chicago River is being replaced. This required closing Chicago Ave. between Larrabee and Halsted Streets. The full project to replace the bridge will last five months. However, the roadway on Chicago Ave. is scheduled to reopen early 2019.

Detours for bicyclists, pedestrians, personal vehicles, buses and trucks have been created. The image below shows the detour plan. For more information on the issue see this document from the Chicago Department of Transportation.

Please take the additional time for these detours into account, so you can be on time to our meetings.


For those driving West on Chicago avenue, the last entrance to the detour is on Kingsbury St, as shown below:
