Navy Pier flyover approved
The Navy Pier Flyover, which received substantial funding under the Congestion Mitigation and Air Quality Improvement (CMAQ) program, recently moved one step closer to becoming a reality. Late last month, the City of Chicago Plan Commission approved the project. You can see a presentation regarding the Flyover on the City of Chicago’s website. The Plan Commission hearing and its decision was widely reported in local media, including the Chicago Tribune, Sun Times, Chicago Reader, and NBC Chicago.
The Flyover will create safer conditions by reducing conflicts between cyclists, pedestrians, and automobiles. The Flyover will also provide congestion relief for cyclists, pedestrians and other Lakefront trail users near Navy Pier.
