TRANS, bridging river between Blue Line & Maybrook [FP, M]

Forest Park Review (West Suburban Journal's Frank Life) reports that construction of a bridge over the Des Plaines River will begin next spring. There was no estimated completion date. The bridge will connect the Forest Park Blue Line stop to the Maybrook facility and the Illinois Prairie Path, a bicycle trail.

Creating the bridge may lead to pressure to connect the Illinois Prairie Path which runs from Maybrook to the Fox River to the Des Plaines River Trail. The Des Plaines River Trail runs from Schiller Woods 12 miles to the north.

In the past Forest Preserve activists beat back a plan to run a paved trail to the south from Schiller Woods.
