Grid Shots: Bridge Construction Interrupts Transit Service

The Wells Street bridge is under construction until early morning Monday, March 11, and Brown and Purple Line Express trains have modified service. The Chicago Department of Transportation is replacing part of the southern bridge leaf in a 9-day stretch; a part of the northern leaf will be replaced in April.

The Chicago Transit Authority and our contributors posted several photos of the construction. Contribute your own photos to our Flickr group.
