The Cook County Department of Transportation and Highways is closing all lanes of the Crawford Avenue/Pulaski Road bridge over the Cal-Sag Channel in Alsip, Crestwood and Robbins, IL to traffic beginning Friday, December 9 at 10 p.m. through Sunday, December 11 at 6 p.m. The closure is being planned for necessary overhead structural steel repairs to the bridge.
Local access to businesses and residences along 131st and 135th Streets to the bridge will be maintained. The posted detour will direct traffic along 131st Street, 135th Street and Kedzie Avenue.
Motorists can expect delays and should allow extra time for trips through this area throughout the weekend. Drivers are urged to pay close attention to rough road signs along 131st Street, obey the posted speed limits and be on alert for workers and equipment near the work zone.
Work on the project began in April. Following the weekend closure, reduced lanes will remain in effect until the project is completed before the end of December.
