CDOT Charts Wacker Drive Reconstruction in Photos

The reconstruction of Wacker Drive has forced downtown workers to find creative ways to get to work, negotiate the streets and just led to a general cock-up of foot traffic. But progress is being made. Randolph Street is open again and CDOT crews are working their way south.

CDOT has a webpage dedicated to charting the progress of Wacker Drive's reconstruction. What we found intriguing about the page was some of the things regular passers-by don't see, such as the underground trolley on Washington or the tunnel boring machine assembly. It's human ingenuity in action.
