48th Ward UpdateView this email in your browser July 29, 2021 

Dear Neighbor,

This weekend Bryn Mawr Ave. will be closed between Broadway and Winthrop to allow crews to begin demolition on the viaduct. This will be an ongoing closure beginning tomorrow, Friday, July 30, 8pm, through Monday, August 2, 5am. This closure will also impact sidewalks. Crews expect to first impact sidewalks on the north side of the street through Saturday afternoon, leaving the south side of Bryn Mawr’s sidewalks open. On Saturday afternoon, crews will flip and close down the south side of the street’s sidewalk, leaving the north side open to pedestrians. At all time, pedestrians will be able to access the northbound Bryn Mawr Red Line station entrance on the south side of Bryn Mawr Ave. 

Additional impacts to consider when planning your travels this weekend:
In order to access alleys, residents south of Bryn Mawr Ave. will need to access the alley via Catalpa Ave. and residents north of Bryn Mawr Ave. will need to access the alley via Hollywood Ave.

The 84 Peterson bus will be rerouted from Bryn Mawr Ave. to Hollywood Ave., Broadway, and Thorndale Ave. ending their trips at the Thorndale Red Line station. Click here to read more about the Temporary Reroute for the 84 bus.

The 92 Foster bus will be rerouted to the Bryn Mawr Red Line station on Broadway, head east on Hollywood Ave., and go south on Sheridan Rd. Click here to read more about the Temporary Reroute for the 92 bus.

Our staff and representatives from the CTA RPM team visited businesses on this block of Bryn Mawr to let them know about this weekend’s construction. Most plan to remain open during construction. Please make an effort to support them during this challenging time!
