Live: Evanston gets new CTA viaduct at Greenleaf


Construction crews are moving a new viaduct into place on the CTA Purple Line at Greenleaf Street in Evanston this weekend. And you can watch live video of the action here.

The video feed, arranged by the City of Evanston, captures the action from a location at the Autobarn dealership just south of the construction site.

The peak of the action is expected between 4 and 7 p.m. today when the actual roll-in of the viaduct is scheduled to take place.
