Good Afternoon, I am going to monitor the Chicago River Bridge Lift/Boat Run sometime in the next few weeks. I am thinking of bringing a scanner, will this help me in keeping track of the bridge lifts? I understand CDOT Bridge crews us Marine CH 12? Finally I would likely be fallowing the Run from Madison to Street to either Michigan or Lake Shore Drive which is better? Thanks.

I can confirm that CDOT crews use VHF marine channel 12 for bridge lifts.
