Fabrication of the structural steel spine and rib for the new bridge is also underway, with assembly of the first steel pipe pieces that will support the new bike path. This month will also see induction bending of the spine elements to support the curved structure.
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.
