To kick off the reveal of a temporary mural along the 606 – also known as the Bloomingdale Trail – free dog portraits were created by local artists with Project Onward, a nonprofit studio and gallery for artists with mental and developmental disabilities.
The ribbon was cut this morning on the nearly 3-mile long trail known as the 606, reports WBBM’s Mike Krauser.
Today it’s an empty trail connecting four Chicago neighborhoods from Humboldt Park to Bucktown. But, that changes in a big way on Saturday when the 606 will be filled with bicycles, joggers, dog walkers and kids.
Remember the storms last Monday? Some people on a stretch of Bloomindale say they’re still cleaning up because of someone else’s mistake. CBS 2’s Roseanne Tellez reports.
A much-anticipated new park and bike trail from Humboldt Park to Wicker Park won’t be completed until next year, after the bitter winter weather hampered construction efforts.
After a slow trek along North Avenue this morning a 100-year-old bridge is in place.
It’s not every day you see a bridge being hauled down city streets. On Saturday, a bridge that once spanned Ashland Avenue in the Wicker Park neighborhood will make a 1.5-mile trek to its new home over Western Avenue along the Bloomingdale Trail.
Ashland Avenue will be closed to traffic in both directions between North Avenue and Armitage Avenue, from 8 p.m. Friday until no later than 5 a.m. Monday.
Mayor Richard M. Daley had his Millennium Park, now Mayor Rahm Emanuel has his own plan to beautify the city with public space by investing $290 million in hundreds of parks over the next five years, including the long-delayed Bloomingdale Trail on the Northwest Side.
Chicagoans next week will get to see the plans for log-awaited the Bloomingdale Trail, the liner park that will be developed along an old and defunct rail line on the Near Northwest Side.
Mayor Rahm Emanuel on Wednesday took a step forward in the plan to convert an old and defunct elevated rail line into a linear park.
