Attention bus commuters, pedestrians and cyclists: beginning tomorrow, the State Street Bridge will be closed for ten days. The Chicago Department of Transportation has announced that it will be temporary closing the bridge for Riverwalk construction work. Traffic along the stretch will be detoured to LaSalle and Clark streets via Wacker, and bicyclists are recommended to use the Dearborn Street bike lane. The Chicago Riverwalk's $100 million extension has been under construction for most of this year, and once completed, will offer an uninterrupted walkway stretching from State Street all the way around to Lake Street.
