Chicago Mayor Rahm Emanuel's office says ground will be broken Tuesday on the Bloomingdale Trail in Bucktown.

The Bloomingdale Trail is a nearly three-mile multipurpose elevated trail, which is set to open fall 2014.

The trail runs west to east along Bloomingdale Avenue from Ridgeway Avenue on the west to Ashland Avenue on the east.

The mayor's office describes the trail as an urban oasis and a community connector for the Bucktown, Wicker Park, Logan Square and Humboldt Park neighborhoods.
