Lakefront Path Flyover Bridge

The intent of the long-awaited flyover bridge is to alleviate congestion along the popular lakefront walk/bike path.  The flyover bridge is expected to take users from Ohio Street Beach to the south side of the Chicago River, thereby avoiding the narrow and often overly congested sidewalk on the lower Lake Shore Drive bridge.

The Plan Commission approved the Flyover Bridge in February 2011.  Construction is anticipated to begin in 2012.
