Loop Alliance Plans State Street Closures on Summer Sundays

Chicago Loop Alliance is launching an open streets project called Sundays on State that would see parts of State Street in the Loop closed to vehicle traffic for up to 12 Sundays this summer. The organization is inviting members of the community to get involved and share their ideas for what the alliance is calling an interactive block party.

In an effort to bring people safely back to the Loop, the alliance will transform State Street from Madison to Lake into an open street on Sundays beginning July 11. The closures will last from 7 a.m.-11 p.m., and the event itself will take place from 11 a.m.-8 p.m.

“As vaccine distribution continues to ramp up, and as the weather warms, we see Sundays on State as an opportunity to attract people back to the Loop in 2021,” said Loop Alliance president and CEO Michael Edwards.
