If you are going out tonight, double check your plans to make sure your event hasn't been cancelled – many are making last minute changes due to the recent surge due to the omicron variant.
And as you move around out and about, expect to see many downtown streets, sidewalks and bridges closed and increased police presence as the city prepares to host its largest holiday fireworks show ever along the lakefront and Chicago River.
Consider taking CTA (see the schedule here), which is going back to their free New Years Eve service beginning at 10pm tonight until 4 am tomorrow (New Years Day). & Make sure you wear your mask – they’re required at all times on CTA buses, trains and properties.
Make it a fun and safe start to the new year!
