Service to the area resumed at 5 a.m., and all bridges are expected to be down by 9 a.m., according to an announcement from Chicago’s Office of Emergency Management and Communications.

Additionally, Lake Shore Drive, Interstate 90/94 and Interstate 290 opened at 5 a.m., the OEMC said.

About 12:15 p.m., the downtown area was opened to vehicular traffic, the OEMC said.

Activists and groups from across Chicago gathered in the Near West Side park before heading north on Ashland Avenue and marching through West Town.
