Flyover would connect river to Ohio Street near Navy Pier

July 15, 2010 (CHICAGO)

The Department of Transportation plans to build an elevated pathway at the Chicago River and Lake Shore Drive near Navy Pier.

The $40 million project will be funded mostly by tax dollars. It would provide a dedicated path for bicyclists and pedestrians from the Chicago River to Ohio Street.

A CDOT spokesman explains construction will not begin for another few years.
