Dempster in Evanston to close for CTA viaduct roll-in

Dempster Street is scheduled to close this weekend between Sherman Avenue and Sherman Place so crews can roll a new CTA Purple Line viaduct into place.

Assuming the work isn't delayed by weather conditions, the road is expected to close at noon Friday, and remain closed through 3:30 p.m. Tuesday.

Eastbound Dempster Street traffic will be directed to northbound Maple Avenue and eastbound Greenwood Street to reconnect with Dempster Street via southbound Chicago Avenue.

Westbound Dempster Street traffic will be directed to northbound Chicago Avenue and westbound Lake Street to reconnect with Dempster Street via southbound Oak Avenue. 

Motorists should expect delays and allow extra time for trips through the area.
