The city of Chicago is shutting down the Grand Avenue bridge for at least part of the next two weekends.

The bridge will be closed again next Friday, September 20 at 9 a.m. for additional repairs. The Chicago Department of Transportation says crews will reopen the bridge on Monday, September 23 in time for the morning rush hour commute.
