The Bloomingdale Trail: Chicago’s Next Great Park


Thema: Imagine a 3-mile-long elevated linear park and trail running through the heart of Chicago, connecting neighborhoods, the river, and Chicago’s great park system. Built from a former rail line, the Bloomingdale will make Chicago’s residents healthier, get people to school and work faster, and provide communities with great chances to play and mingle.
Beschreibung: The Bloomingdale Trail is envisioned as a multi-use recreational trail built along an elevated rail line along Bloomingdale Avenue (approximately 1800 North) from Ashland (1600 West) to Ridgeway (3732 West). Length: 2.65 miles, Viaducts: 37. The project is on track for completion by fall of 2014. Phase I (engineering and preliminary design) is complete, with final Phase II development plans in underway. The City of Chicago is in the final steps of taking possession of The Bloomingdale’s embankment and bridges, currently the property of the Canadian Pacific Railway. Construction is expected to begin in late spring 2013.
Ort: Chicago, USA
