Navy Pier ‘Flyover’ to begin construction today
Construction begins today on upper Lake Shore Drive’s Navy Pier Flyover project.
The three-phase elevated lakefront path is expected to stretch from south of the Chicago River to Jane Addams Park.
The upper exit ramp to Illinois Street will be reduced to one lane starting today.
The lakefront trail, however, is expected to remain open for pedestrian and bicycle traffic.
The entire $60-million project should wrap-up in 2018.
