Addison Underbridge Connection, North Riverfront Trail

The Chicago Department of Transportation is currently designing a new segment of the North Branch Trail, which links existing segments in Clark Park to the south and California Park (and onward to Horner Park) to the north. The new trail segment would run under the existing Addison Street Bridge for safe crossing, along the 47th Ward embankment of the North Branch of the Chicago River, crossing into the 33rd ward a on a multi-use pedestrian bridge. The creation of this publicly accessible open space will link major existing parks, create pedestrian and bicycle access that would otherwise be difficult and dangerous, and fulfill objectives of the Chicago Trails Plan and the Chicago River Corridor Development Plan.

CDOT and the Chicago Park District, as part of the IDOT-required Phase 1 process, held a public meeting on December 4th at the Revere Park Fieldhouse. The public meeting included an open house, project presentation, and an opportunity for questions and feedback. CLICK HERE to view the presentation given at this meeting.
