Why a Duck? To Get to the Other Side! Evanston Viaduct Cam!

Live broadcast by Ustream The CTA Purple Line is closed down this weekend as new 400,000 pound steel bridges are maneuvered into position to replace century-old viaducts at Grove and Dempster streets. The Dempster Street viaduct is expected to be put into place between 2:00 and 4:00 p.m., today, Saturday, June 23rd, with the Grove Street viaduct slipping in between 6:00 and 8:00 p.m. Normal Purple Line service is expected to resume early Monday morning, with the project completed on Tuesday.

Design Evanston members are holding their own Viaduct Party at Dempster and Sherman at 2:00.

There are video cams at each of the sites, and you can check them both out here.

Lynn: Small point - next time provide a link and don't embed the video. Embedded v's almost always cut out portion of the right side, so it becomes impossible to click on the cancel "x" to kill the ads which constantly appear across the screen. I know it nit picking - - but it IS annoying. Your wonderful blog (which I follow regularly from here in NYC)is worthy of better.
