The 606, also known as the The Bloomingdale Trail, is finally finished! Guess how long it took for the city to build the trail? 10 years!
The long awaited trail stretches from Humboldt Park to Bucktown which is about 2.7 miles. This weekend will be filled with events along the trail and everyone is welcome.
Throughout the weekend, there will be ribbon cutting ceremonies at each of the trail’s access points, art activities and a pancake breakfast (only on Sunday). But still, how awesome!
606 cost about $100 million to create and Mayor Rahm Emanuel believes will connect the neighborhoods it runs through. Hopefully Chicagoan’s appreciate the hard work that was put in to this trail.
Take a look at the new project below:
You can see the trail is equipped with lights for those who are out and about at night. Let’s hope the trail has other safety features too!
