1-May-15 Improving transportation in and around River North and Streeterville is the goal of a public meeting in May hosted by Chicago Department of Transportation.
(Left) Two L trains pass on the Wells Street Bridge that connects River North with the Loop.
CDOT wants to make sure any proposals it offers are supported by stakeholders in the two Near North neighborhoods.
They have 13 ideas for improving transit connections within River North and Streeterville, and between the area and the West Loop. The alternate pathways are based on transportation habits of people who live and/or work in the neighborhoods.
They want to show the 13 options to the public and get feedback to help narrow the choices down to three. Those three would be shared at a public meeting this fall with the goal of identifying the most preferred option.
Similar meetings were held last year and one was held on Thursday. The next meeting is scheduled for May 7.
