Construction has begun on the Oak and Cherry Street Bridges: on Oak from Green Bay Road to Lincoln Avenue and on Cherry Street from Green Bay Road to Maple Street. The project includes the removal and replacement of the superstructure of both bridges, and their foundations will be supplemented to increase their capacity. Construction is scheduled to be complete by November 2019. Originally, construction was planned for one bridge at a time, but due to a delayed Right of Entry permit from the Union Pacific, this was not feasible.

The Green Bay Trail should remain open during construction, with the exception of a few daily closures while beam removal and installation take place.

The Metra train schedule will not be impacted. Riders should use stairways and elevators between Oak and Elm Streets.
