You can bank on one thing happening on the North Side of Chicago these days—construction. Lots of it.
Development projects are taking place at rapid-fire rates in and around Wrigleyville, notably the erection of a sprawling new shopping plaza across from Wrigley Field and a new hotel just across the street. A little further west, the Southport Corridor is also getting its own kind of makeover and residents are already taking advantage of it.
Fresh, re-paved roads have taken shape on Southport Avenue, stretching from Belmont to Irving Park, and the streets are not only smoother, they’re much improved, meaning a lot safer. We snapped a few photos of the newly painted bike lanes/crosswalks so you can see for yourself. Much improved? You tell us. Leave us a comment below.
