 million bridge plans unveiled

To provide a new way to travel between Bucktown and Lincoln Park, developer Sterling Bay has released plans for a $35 million bridge. They will also be extending the 606 trail across the Chicago River. WGN-TV reported on Oct. 12 that Sterling Bay’s $6 billion Lincoln Yards development is to turn 55 acres of former industrial land along the North Branch of the Chicago River into a combination of commercial and residential spaces.

The company had received a $1 billion taxpayer subsidy. The subsidy was for improvements to infrastructure like bridges, roads, and rails. There are also plans to extend the popular 606 Trail from its current endpoint in Wicker Park to run under the Kennedy Expressway, over the Chicago River via a new bridge on Dominick Street, and into Lincoln Park.

WGN-TV also reported, “Renderings released Monday show how the new Dominick Bridge will cross over the Chicago River to ultimately extend Dominick Street from Webster Avenue to North Avenue, including lanes for cars, a two-way bike lane, and pedestrian walkways. The bridge will also include an extension of the Chicago Riverwalk underneath.”

The bridge construction is expected to begin in the middle of 2021, according to Sterling Bay. They also said it will take two years to complete the project.
