Road closings and redirects around Chicago this week

| No Comments

Repair and maintenance work will lead to street closures and detours in several places around the city this week, according to the Chicago Department of Transportation.

Concrete repair work under a CSX Railroad viaduct in the Englewood neighborhood will close 63rd Street between Bell and Hamilton avenues on Wednesday from 9 a.m. to 4 p.m., according to a CDOT release. Detour routes will be in effect.

This weekend, CTA Green Line track maintenance will also result in the closure of 63rd Street in Englewood, between Wells Street and Princeton Avenue, CDOT said. The closure will start at 10 p.m. Friday and will last until 5 a.m. Monday. Traffic will be redirected along a detour route for the duration of the closure. Access to Saint Bernard Hospital, located just south of 63rd Street, will be maintained throughout the closure via Stewart Avenue.

Near the Loop, the Chicago Avenue bridge will be closed to vehicular traffic for structural repairs from 10 p.m. Friday to 5 a.m. Monday, CDOT said. Pedestrians will still be able to cross on the south side of the bridge.

Bus, car and bicycle traffic will be rerouted in both directions via Halsted, Division and Larrabee streets, CDOT said. Trucks will be redirected along Halsted, Division and Orleans streets.

The bridge construction has been ongoing since late February, according to CDOT. The $540,000 project is expected to be complete by April 25.
