Chicago's shoreline between Belmont and Diversey is looking good thanks to a makeover.

A ribbon-cutting ceremony was held Thursday to celebrate the completion of the Belmont-Diversey Shoreline Revetment Project.

The work started in 2003. Crumbling old limestone protection barriers were cleared away and a new multi-tiered concrete structure is now open.

Pedestrians are now invited to enjoy the steps.
