The Chicago Transit Authority said it resumed bus and train service across the city at 6 a.m., but buses and trains are bypassing stops that are located within or near new boundaries downtown. Those boundaries were announced by the city on Sunday morning to restrict access to the Loop and other areas. Only people who live and work in the area or do “essential activities” are allowed access until further notice.
Chicago police and vehicles from other city departments are being used to block access to the restricted areas. The CTA said it’s posting updates so residents and employees have the latest information on bus and train service. The boundaries affected by the new restrictions are:
Division Street from Lake Shore Drive and North Halsted Street.
North Halsted from Division to Milwaukee Avenue and Grand Avenue.
Milwaukee from Grand to Kinzie Street.
Canal Street. from Kinzie to 26th Street.
26th from Canal to Lake Shore Drive.
