Rediscovering the River
Blair Kamin calls it a "handsome, people-friendly public space":
"Built atop steel piles and concrete landfill, the project plugs gaps in the existing riverwalk with new pathways, 17 feet wide, that slide beneath the Michigan Avenue and Wabash Avenue Bridges. Pedestrians no longer have to climb stairs to street level to get from one section of the river walk to another (at left, below). Once the Wabash-to-State section opens, there will be a continuous waterfront pathway from "That Great Street" to Lake Michigan."
