The Chicago Department of Transportation has begun a multi-phase project to rehabilitate four viaducts of Canal Street between Taylor Street and Madison Street that serve as both a major corridor into Chicago’s Central Business District, and as the roof of Chicago Union Station. Phase I of this improvement is a viaduct rehabilitation of Canal Street from Jackson Boulevard to Adams Street, adjacent to Chicago Union Station.
The full width of Canal Street, including the roadway and sidewalks, is being fully reconstructed. To facilitate completion of this work, Canal Street is now fully closed from Jackson to Adams for approximately 18 months. Construction crews will perform day and night work. Access to Chicago Union Station will be maintained.
