Chicago-One New Year's Eve and Post NYE Celebration LIVE Pubic Safety Coverage


This is the very first time since Chicago-One News was established that there has been live, real-time New Year's Eve and/or post New Years celebration coverage of Chicago public safety conditions. This coverage is to assist the public with knowing what is happening around them so the public can make the best decisions for themselves, while also bringing forth transparency about the work being done by the Chicago Police Dept in the midst of the largest ever New Year's Eve celebration the city has ever experienced. 

This coverage will primarily be focused on the 001st and 018th districts. These districts fall under the investigative responsibilities of the Area-3 Bureau of Detectives.

The following is the exact plan for how closures will take place tonight, per the City of Chicago: 

At 4 p.m., the Chicago Riverwalk will close east of State Street to all pedestrian traffic. The remainder of the Riverwalk west of State Street will close based on public safety. Viewing will not be allowed from the Chicago Riverwalk.

Beginning at 11 p.m., expect complete closures of the Franklin/Orleans Street, Lasalle Street, Clark Street, Dearborn Street, and State Street bridges to all vehicular and pedestrian traffic.

Also, at 11:00 p.m., eastbound Upper, Middle and Lower Wacker Drive will be closed to vehicular traffic from Lake Street to Stetson Avenue. Pedestrian traffic and viewing from Upper Wacker Drive will be permitted. 

This evening around 7:30PM, the Chicago Police Dept started preparations for tonight's festivities as planned by putting all street, bridge, and River Walk closures into effect.
