CTA To Build New Track This Weekend; Broadway Closed Saturday/Sunday
Wonderful news! The c. 1907 elevated tracks that ran over Broadway and loomed over the entrance to the Gerber Building for 110 years are now completely down. (See photo below). So what's next? Building new tracks!
CTA says, "We will have crews working this Saturday and Sunday, 6am-6pm each day, using a crane set up on Broadway to set steel north of Wilson.
Broadway between Wilson and Clifton will be shut down to vehicles starting at 6am on Saturday and will open back up to vehicular traffic Sunday at 6pm. The west sidewalk of Broadway will be closed as a safety precaution.
There will be noise, dust, and heavy equipment in the area as a result of this work."
