Reconstruction of the Fullerton Ave. Bridge over the Lincoln Park lagoon is getting under way.

The $11.6 million dollar project also includes repairs to the adjacent pedestrian underpass. The Fullerton Bridge was built in 1940.

The Chicago Department of Transportation says it needs to be replaced due to its deteriorated condition.
