The [Thursday] Papers

-

Flyover Country
"The long-awaited completion of the Navy Pier Flyover along the lakefront has been delayed yet again, this time until late spring of 2020," the Tribune reports.

"The $64 million pedestrian and bicycle bridge, which will stretch from the Ohio Street Beach to the south side of the Chicago River, was started in 2014 after more than a decade of planning. The city originally predicted it would be finished in 2018, then in the middle of this year, and then at the end of this year, before moving the goal posts again."

A decade of planning? Chicago magazine Assignment Desk, activate!
