CHICAGO (CBS) — The CTA compares it to open heart surgery: the shutdown of the Wells Street Bridge for reconstruction, starting this weekend – affecting the Brown Line and five other lines. And Mayor Emanuel says the city is saving money – and time.
Mayor Emanuel says it is time to replace the Wells Street Bridge.
“So in nine days, we’re going to replace a bridge that was here for the last 90 years. Warren Harding was president then, and if I can say, not that great a president,” said Emanuel.
Emanuel says the city’s project is efficient.
