CHICAGO — The 92nd Street bridge has been reopened to southbound traffic following months of work, according to the city.
The bridge, which crosses the Calumet River and connects South Harbor Avenue to 95th Street, reopened Nov. 18 after it was closed Aug. 1 for extensive repairs to its sidewalk and lighting, the Chicago Department of Transportation said in a statement. The city managed to keep one northbound lane and one sidewalk open for the duration of the project.
Crews replaced the sidewalk's deck grading and and steel framing and installed new sidewalk lighting, the city said.
The city hit its Nov. 18 completion date, despite having to deal with over 800 bridge lifts that would temporarily stall the work.
Following the opening, the No. 30 South Chicago bus and the No. 26 South Shore Express bus have returned to their normal routes along the bridge, the city said.
The historic, moveable bridge was built in 1914 and received major renovations in 1992, according to historicbridges.org.
