Officials at Pilgrim Baptist Church, which burned to the ground five years ago, said Saturday that rebuilding could take several years.
The last of four nights of public meetings on reconstruction of the CTA Purple Line, and the northern end of the Red Line, takes place tonight.
All in all, pedestrians and the estimated 60,000 motorists who use Wacker daily survived the hassles of the construction project that got under way Monday, officials said.
The second phase of Wacker Drive reconstruction begins today, and several streets are already closed.
As the new year arrives, so will a new portion of the Wacker Drive reconstruction project.
