Relocating the West Division Bridge over the North Branch of the Chicago River to Blackhawk Street Bridge

    The current 114 year old bridge at this site is scheduled to be removed in 2019–2020.  A group called the Friends of Goose Island is in discussions with the city of Chicago to arrange for movement of the current bridge to Blackhawk Street to be used as a pedestrian and bike crossing over North Branch of the Chicago River. 

     One of the roadblocks is the 4 to 5 million price tag to relocate the bridge to the new location.  The Friends of Goose Island is seeking to raise these funds.
