$15.5B spending spree for downtown! Well, hopefully.

I came across this article, thanks to Chicago Journal, that details plans for the City of Chicago to spend around $15.5B on a heck of a lot of transportation related projects in, and around, the Loop. The article goes into detail about these very ambitious projects, including spending $2B on a four level transportation hub under Clinton Street to $500M on covering the Eisenhower Expressway with parkland. This article gets me pretty excited, but to think how much drama will be created over these projects, I’ll stay cautiously optimistic. Here’s the link to the article from Chicago Journal. Here’s the map showing where the transportation hub will be generally located.
