Solidarity Drive Pedestrian Underpass Now Open

For those of us who enjoy running, walking, biking or doing whatever along the lakefront a much needed improvement to the path has finally opened. The Solidarity Drive underpass, which enables people utilizing the path to continue their activity without having to stop at Solidarity Drive, is now open and looks pretty great in our opinion.

Solidarity Drive is the street that allows buses and cars to get to the Adler Planetarium, Charter One Pavilion and other things on Northerly Island. In the past, this break in the lakefront path was seen as a huge inconvenience and unsafe for pedestrians. The new underpass solves this problem. Although landscaping and minor finishing touches need to be completed, the underpass is functional and we got our first peak at it this past weekend.

For more information here is a link to a CDOT description of the project.

Good improvement by the city and it even delivered on time...
