The NATO summit, schedule for May 20-21 at McCormick Place, will bring hundreds of dignitaries and thousands of people to Chicago the weekend of May 18-21. And with it will come a lot of logistical issues for city officials and downtown Loop businesses.

Many buildings and areas of downtown are planning to shut down because of the NATO summit. Other organizations, businesses and schools have moved or rescheduled events. The Coast Guard has limited boat travel on Lake Michigan, and the trains that run under McCormick Place will be shut down.

This map outlnes some of the closures. It will be updated frequently as the summit approaches.
