The Washington Street Bridge over the Chicago River will be closed on Monday ahead of spring boating season testing.

The bridge will be closed from 9:30 a.m. until 3:30 p.m., the Chicago Department of Transportation confirmed in a statement.

As a detour, drivers traveling eastbound on Washington should turn south on Clinton, east on Madison and north on Wacker before returning to Washington, the department recommended.
