From 7:30 p.m. on Friday, August 10 until 5 a.m. Monday, August 13, State Street will be intermittently closed between Washington and Randolph for construction work at Block 37.

Seventeen CTA bus routes may need to undergo reroutes to adjacent streets depending upon the traffic volume. Rerouting these bus routes away from the lane reductions on Washington, Dearborn and Randolph for construction activity will improve the reliability of CTA bus service in the area and create a more predictable flow of traffic for the duration of this phase of the project. The routes subject to temporary reroutes are:

  • N4 Cottage Grove Night Owl
  • #6 Jackson Park Express
  • #10 Museum of Science & Industry
  • #N20 Madison Night Owl
