New underpass opens up lakefront

June 27, 2009 (CHICAGO)

The underpass for the lakefront trail under Solidarity Drive was dedicated during a ceremony Saturday.

Mayor Daley was on hand for the festivities.

It allows a much safer crossing for people trying to visit the museum campus, Northerly Island and Soldier Field.

This underpass is one of many projects aimed at improving Chicago's environment for bicyclists and pedestrians.
