Reconstruction work on the Adams Street Bridge over the Chicago River in the Loop will close sidewalks near Union Station.

Pedestrians will not be allowed to use Adams Street along Union Station for 60 days, according to the Chicago Department of Transportation. However, a mid-block crossing will be available. Pedestrians should go north to Monroe Street or south to Jackson Street if they need to walk west from Wacker Drive. The bridge was closed in January for reconstruction work.

The Adams Street entrance to Union Station will remain open during construction, CDOT said. The sidewalks are expected to re-open by Dec. 10. The entire project is expected to be completed by January.
