About the closure

Beginning on January 25, 2016 at 4 a.m. or the start of bus service, the Adams Street Bridge closure will affect the following seven CTA bus routes downtown:

The closure will require reroutes in the immediate surrounding area and will also require the temporary relocation, removal and/or addition of bus stops along the affected routes.

The closure of Adams Street Bridge is expected to last approximately 13 months.
