Chicago Department of Transportation 41st Street Pedestrian Bridge

The 1,470-foot pedestrian bridge spans over Lake Shore Drive and the railroad tracks at 41st Street to connect Chicago’s Bronzeville Neighborhood to the lakefront. The project’s construction consisted of the removal and reconstruction of pedestrian paths, bike trails and sidewalks, roadway lighting relocation, and furnishing and installing lighting on the bridge structure.  The finished bridge consists of tilting arches, curving railings and a deck shaped like a backward “S.” The arches and their steel cables frame spectacular views of the downtown skyline and the 41st Street Beach.
