About DuSable Bridge

The DuSable Bridge, formerly known as the Michigan Avenue Bridge, spans the Chicago River and marks a pivotal point in the city's architectural and urban development. This bascule bridge, opened in 1920, is notable not only for its functionality but also for its ornamental bronzes and relief panels depicting important events in Chicago's history.

Best Time/Season to Visit:

Spring through fall are ideal times to visit the bridge when river traffic is lively and the bridge’s frequent lifting is a sight to behold.
