Please be advised that the City of Chicago will conduct a public safety drill tonight in the downtown area, which may cause traffic disruptions. The drill is part of the City’s ongoing effort to engineer security measures in order to mitigate risk to the Central Business District.
Critical infrastructure assets will be staged at various access points, and the drill will be implemented by city personnel to ensure the safety of large public gatherings and heavily trafficked pedestrian areas. The focus of this exercise is to ensure the safety and well-being of residents, workers, businesses and peaceful gatherings. The drill is not in response to any event but has been planned for weeks as part of ongoing safety efforts.
