The Wells Street bridge will be closed to all traffic Friday from 9:30 a.m. to 2:30 p.m.

The department suggests motorists traveling north turn west on Cermak Road and north on Lumber Street to Canal Street, and motorists traveling south turn south west on Lumber St., then east on Cermak Rd. to Canal St.
