The Wells Street Bridge will close Friday morning for testing and maintenance.

The bridge will be closed to pedestrians and vehicles between midnight and 5 a.m. Friday to allow for testing and maintenance of the bridge’s electrical system, according to a statement from the Chicago Department of Transportation.

Traffic heading south will be detoured from Wells to Kinzie Street and then to the LaSalle Street Bridge during the closure, CDOT said.
