Pedestrian Bridge Completes Trail in Lincoln Village
Chicago Department of Transportation Commissioner Gia Biagi joined 50th Ward Ald. Debra Silverstein, community representatives, advocates and governmental partners at the ribbon cutting for the new Lincoln Village Pedestrian Bridge, a new pedestrian/bicycle bridge connecting the east and west sides of the North Shore Channel Trail in Lincoln Village.
The 16-foot-wide, 180-foot-long Lincoln Village Bridge is the final link in the creation of a continuous multi-use trail connecting four municipalities along the North Shore Channel.
“The Lincoln Village Bridge improves safety and the recreational experience for pedestrians, joggers, bicycle-riders and anyone pushing a stroller or using a wheelchair,” Biagi said.
“Residents of the 50th Ward and the City of Chicago finally have a beautiful and fully connected bike path,” said Silverstein. “Cyclists can now enjoy a safe and comfortable walk, ride or run on the trail all the way from Lawrence Avenue into the northern suburbs.”
