Bloomingdale Trail construction to begin
The mayor and others broke ground today on the Bloomingdale Trail.
The old railroad line in Logan Square is being repurposed into a bike and pedestrian trail that runs through a series of parks.
Mayor Emanuel made it one of his campaign promises to complete the plan joining neighborhoods that have long been divided by the dangerous and overgrown tracks.
Phase one for the 2.7 mile project is due to be completed in the fall of 2014.
