CTA reroute for Olympics event

| No Comments | No TrackBacks

In case you haven't heard, Chicago's trying to get the 2016 Olympics, and we find out if we get them Friday. There will be a live viewing at Daley Plaza, so Clark Street between Randolph and Washington will be closed to all traffic from 8 p.m. Thursday until 4 p.m. Friday. Two CTA bus routes will be detoured to adjacent streets.

Southbound #22 Clark and #24 Wentworth buses will travel over their regular routes along Clark to Randolph then will operate via Randolph, LaSalle, Monroe to Clark and then resume their regular routes. Northbound #22 and #24 buses are not affected and will travel over their regular routes.

If necessary, Chicago police could also close Dearborn between Washington and Randolph, and Washington between Clark and Dearborn. If that happens, the northbound #22 Clark, #36 Broadway and #62 Archer buses will travel over their regular routes along Dearborn to Monroe then will operate via Monroe, State, Wacker to Dearborn and then resume their regular routes. Southbound #36 and #62 buses will travel over their regular routes.

Northbound #24 Wentworth buses will operate over the regular route along Dearborn to Monroe then will travel via Monroe, State to Wacker and then resume the regular route west of Dearborn.

Eastbound #20 Madison, #X20 Washington/Madison Express, #60 Blue Island/26th and #157 Streeterville/Taylor buses will travel over their regular routes along Washington to LaSalle then will operate via LaSalle, Monroe, State to Washington and then resume their regular routes. Westbound #20, #X20, #60 and #157 buses are not affected and will travel over their regular routes.

Southbound #56 Milwaukee buses will operate over the regular route along Washington to LaSalle then will travel via LaSalle, Monroe, State to Washington and then resume the regular route. Northbound #56 buses are not affected and will travel over the regular route.

The CTA is asking customers to allow extra travel time.
