Adams Street Bridge reopens after 13 month project

The Adams Street Bridge reopened Friday morning after a 13 month long rehab project.

The bridge has been around since 1927 and is one of 37 across the city that can be raised to allow boats to pass through on the Chicago River.

Starting Monday those bridges will be raised and lowered to make sure they are in good working order ahead of the summer boating season.

The Chicago Department of Transportation said drivers should avoid the closures and use different routes.
