New phase of Wacker reconstruction begins

January 9, 2012 1:49:00 PM PST
Morning commuters heading into the Loop from the west may want to allow extra time as phase three of the Wacker Drive reconstruction project gets under way Monday.

The construction work will take place on both upper and lower Wacker and will result in the closure of the Wacker Drive intersections with Adams and Monroe streets until summer.

The Madison Street intersection will reopen Monday morning.

Eighteen CTA bus routes operating in the area will also be affected. Click here for a list of all buses affected

The $300 million project is scheduled for completion late this year.
