    LINCOLN PARK — General Iron’s non-shredding operations have been up and running since June 29, despite Mayor Lori Lightfoot’s assurances that the scrapyard remained closed pending an investigation into explosions at the Lincoln Park site.

So the planned lifting of restrictions on indoor activities, like gyms and restaurants, probably won’t happen as tentatively scheduled this Friday. “I think we need to be very cautious...
