Semi-Trailer Gets Stuck Under Bucktown Viaduct
A semi-trailer lodged beneath a Metra viaduct slowed traffic in Bucktown Friday afternoon.
It took crews more than an hour to dislodge the truck from the viaduct on Webster Street, just east of Damen and the Kennedy Expressway in Bucktown.
The truck, heading eastbound on Webster, passed under the I-90/94 viaduct without incident but became lodged beneath the viaduct supporting the Union Pacific Northwest Metra line. Both signs, however, show a clearance of 12-foot-four.
The crash occurred at approximately 3:15 PM and had traffic blocked on Webster in both directions for just over an hour.
Alderman Scott Waguespack (32nd) along with ward staff and volunteers were on the scene helping detour traffic from the accident scene as no Chicago Police personnel responded to the incident.
