SHARE Bridge lifts along Chicago River scheduled for Wednesday evening

Anyone driving over the Chicago River from the Lower West Side all the way downtown Wednesday evening could run into some delays as the city conducts a series of bridge lifts.

Bridges over the South Branch of the river and the main branch, from Loomis Street to Wells Street, will be lifted after the evening rush starting after 6 p.m. to allow a heavy crane to move along the river, according to the Chicago Dept. of Transportation.

The bridge lifts will start at Loomis Street, and because of the large size of the crane being moved, two bridges at a time will be raised, in succession, according to CDOT.

The entire process should take about four hours. The bridge lift had originally been planned for Aug. 5, but was canceled and rescheduled to Wednesday.
