Navy Pier Flyover

Enhancing Chicago’s Lakefront Trail

June/July Update

Crews are currently installing the new steel sheet pile necessary to rebuild the seawall on the north side of the Ogden Slip. Once the seawall is rebuilt, they will construct the new concrete pier for the flyover on the north side of the slip.

Work continues on the structural steel spine and ribs for the new bridge. This includes bending the steel spine and fabricating attachment brackets, which will be welded onto the new spine.

Like last month, intermittent off-peak closures of the right lane on Northbound Lower Lake Shore Drive may be required as materials and equipment are delivered to the site. All closures are being coordinated with Navy Pier to limit public impact.
