A stretch of Fullerton will close this weekend while patients from Children's Memorial Hospital are transferred to the new Lurie Children's Hospital downtown.

Fullerton will be closed from Lincoln to Lake Shore Drive this Saturday starting at 4 a.m. It will remain closed until all the patients have been transferred from the old hospital to the new one, which could take 10-to-18 hours.

Exit and entrance ramps to Fullerton from Lake Shore Drive will also be shut down.
