Traffic Watch: State Street Bridge temporarily closed

Posted: Updated:
CHICAGO (FOX 32 News) -

It just got a little more difficult to get around Downtown Thursday morning.

The State Street Bridge over the Chicago River officially closed for ten days Wednesday in order to continue the construction of a walkway underneath it, which is part of the ongoing Chicago Riverwalk project.

Crews are working on a continuous pedestrian path along the main branch of the Chicago River from State Street to Lake Street. This phase of construction requires lifting and closing the bridges for a period of several days each.

Commuters can use LaSalle, Clark, Dearborn, Wabash or Michigan as your alternates. Plus, CTA is having to re-route the #29, #36 and #62 buses around the closure.

Give yourself a little extra time to accommodate for the detour.

The bridge is scheduled to reopen on Saturday, August 23.
