Eight CTA bus lines that operate on or cross Dearborn Street downtown will be detoured Saturday, September 11, for the Von Steuben Parade and the Mexican Independence Day Parade. The German parade is scheduled to start at 10:30 a.m., followed by the Mexican parade at noon. The line of march for both parades will be south on Dearborn from Wacker to Van Buren.
Buses affected by the parades will be the #20 Madison, #22 Clark, #36 Broadway, #56 Milwaukee, #60 Blue Island/26th, #62 Archer, #126 Jackson, and #151 Sheridan (Union Station).
#22 Clark, #36 Broadway and #62 Archer buses that normally use Dearborn through the downtown area will be detoured northbound onto State Street.
#20 Madison, #60 Blue Island/26th and #126 Jackson buses that enter the Loop from the west will operate east only to LaSalle or Clark before turning back west over their regular routes.
#56 Milwaukee and #151 Sheridan buses, which serve the Ogilvie Transportation Center (NorthWestern Station) and Union Station, respectively, will operate around the parade area, using LaSalle to cross the Chicago River northbound and Clark southbound before returning to their regular routes.
