Great News! Both Division Street Bridges will be widen
Great News! Both Division Street Bridges (at Halsted and at Elston) will be widen – 2 lanes in either direction. It’s a priority for the City, so funding is available. The construction is being scheduled and will commence in phases. Details below.
NNUP would like to thank you for advocating and supporting the Petition, especially to those who volunteered to solicit hard-copy signatures.
Phase 1 -- Spring 2014 to ~Aug. 2014 -- Construction of temporary bridge at Halsted
Phase 2 -- ~May 2014 to ~Dec 2015 -- Construction of temporary bridge at Elston
Phase 3 -- ~Dec 2017 -- Completion of both permanent bridges
Note: The new bridges will require the widening of Division Street. The City will obtain approximately 4 to 5 feet of land on the north side of Division running from Elston to Target to widen the road surface.
