Construction on The 606's arched bridge along Milwaukee Avenue has begun. One of these days, residents of our fair city will be able to run or ride their bicycles three miles from the near northwest side to Lincoln Park, but that day has not come just yet. Construction crews are making steady progress on the ambitious rails-to-trails project, and began work on a bridge located on Milwaukee Avenue just a few paces northwest of Leavitt Avenue this past weekend. Eventually, the bridge will receive steel support arches, and the current supports holding up the structure will be removed. The rendering of the final bridge design shows lots of green grass and birds flying overhead. It will certainly be a beautiful day when The 606 is completed later this year.
