The mish-mash of traffic and pedestrian crossings surrounding Logan Square's Illinois Centennial Monument could be getting an extreme makeover soon. A neighborhood committee know as the Bicentennial Improvements Project has unveiled a second revision of its plan for a redesigned Logan Square that includes a couple of significant changes to the original plan that was introduced back in 2012. According to the new plan, traffic would be closed on Milwaukee Avenue through the square to create a continuous public park space, and Kedzie Boulevard would be shifted northwest, combining the old street with the plaza around the bus terminal to create a new public space. Organizers say that CDOT has funding for design and engineering thanks to a $270,000 match to federal funds by Cook County. They've also created a petition to drum up more support for the ambitious project.
