Illinois Department of Transportation once again informs me that the bridge
carrying Torrence Avenue over the Grand Calumet River located in the City of
Chicago will be closed starting tomorrow. The bridge is being closed due to
recent structural deterioration.
Department of Transportation will utilize the following detour, which the City
of Chicago is already using. Northbound traffic on Torrence Avenue will be
detoured east on Sibley Blvd. for one mile, north on Burnham Avenue for 1 1/2
miles, northwest on Brainard Avenue for 1 1/2 miles, and west on 130th Street to
Torrence Avenue for 0.1 miles. Southbound traffic on Torrence Avenue will take
the reverse trip. Please note that due to an on-going City of Chicago
construction project, Torrence Avenue is currently detoured north of 130th
The Department will be closing the bridge immediately
and will post the signs to identify the detour route over the
next several days.
The emergency bridge repairs will be
performed as expeditiously as possible in order to reopen this bridge and
minimize disruptions to motorists using Torrence Avenue. If you have any questions or need additional
information, please contact me or Ms. Marnie Hooghkirk, Area Programmer, at
