LIVE UPDATES: Downtown Starts Reopening Wednesday, Mayor Lightfoot Pledges To Speed Up Police Reforms
Block Club reporters are following what’s happening in neighborhoods all around the city.
Most bridges will lower and streets will reopen to everyone, the city announced.
"I want to tell the city now, after a lot of consultation and, yes, a lot of prayer, we will reopen tomorrow and take this important next step as planned," Mayor Lori Lightfoot said Tuesday.
"We're concerned about safety everywhere. Everywhere," Lightfoot said. "And there are people, unfortunately, who are roving the city trying to find soft spots that they can exploit."
A reporter was pepper sprayed and other protesters say they were beaten with batons Saturday during Downtown protests.
The city was set to enter Phase 3 of reopening Wednesday, but that might now happen in the midst of protests, Lightfoot said.
The district temporarily stopped the program Monday due to "the evolving nature of activity across the city."
