Thirteen CTA bus lines that operate on State between Congress and Wacker will be detoured from 10 p.m. Friday, June 11, through midnight Sunday, June 13, for the annual Celebration on State. Generally, buses that operate on Michigan north of Wacker will use Michigan through the downtown area as well. Other buses will use Dearborn northbound and Clark southbound.

The affected lines include the #4 Cottage Grove, #6 Jeffery Express, #10 Museum of Science & Industry, #29 State, #36 Broadway, #62 Archer, #145 Wilson/Michigan Express, #146 Marine/Michigan Express, #147 Outer Drive Express, and #151 Sheridan. Three other bus lines that have been temporarily detoured to State during reconstruction on Michigan will return to Michigan during the celebration: the #20 Madison, #56 Milwaukee, and #60 Blue Island/26th.

Buses on the #10 Museum of Science & Industry route that normally operate on State between Wacker and Congress will stay on Michigan in both directions between Chicago and Balbo. Southbound #145, #146 and #151 buses will use Michigan to Congress. #146 buses heading north from the Museum Campus will stay on Michigan from Balbo, while #145 and #151 buses will use Dearborn north from Congress before returning to Michigan at Jackson.

#151 buses to Union Station will turn west from Michigan at Adams, and return to Michigan from Jackson. #147 buses will go north on Dearborn from Congress to Washington before turning east back to Michigan.

#4 Cottage Grove buses will operate north on Dearborn and south on Clark between Congress and Wacker, as will #29 State, #36 Broadway and #62 Archer buses. #6 Jeffery Express buses will continue to use Michigan north to Wacker, but will operate south on Clark from Wacker to Congress before returning to the regular route at Michigan.

#20 Madison, #56 Milwaukee and #60 Blue Island/26th buses will use their traditional east-west routing all the way to Michigan instead of turning at State.
