Chicago's New Elevated Bikeway (not the Hammerson/London Communications Agency 'Living Hell bridge' at Brent Cross, then)

"Following in the footsteps of the High Line in New York City, Chicago opened a 2.7-mile elevated park, which has already been extremely popular in its first week. Here we round up the initial reactions to The 606, as the new park is called.

" 'Chicago's long-awaited bikeway and elevated park, The 606, opened last weekend (on 6/6, no less) to a rush of pedestrians and cyclists who were eager to test out the new 2.7-mile trail after years of planning, design and construction,' according to Chris Bentley.

"The 606, formerly called the Bloomingdale Trail, 'is as much a highway for bikes as anything else, due in part to its having been largely funded through the U.S. Department of Transportation’s Congestion Mitigation and Air Quality (CMAQ) improvement program'."
