Navy Pier Flyover meeting – Thursday night

We just got word of this meeting from Chicago Dept. of Transportation and Ald. Reilly. The Flyover, if you're not aware of it, is basically a bridge for the Lakefront Trail that would go over Navy Pier eliminating the mixing of trail users, cars and pedestrians on the sidewalks near Navy Pier.

It's a very expensive project that has been in discussions for years.
