About this Project
Completed in 1916 at the convergence of the Chicago River, Lake Street Bridge is an important historic icon to the City of Chicago. The bridge is one of three double decker bascule bridges in the Loop and serves cars, pedestrians, and elevated trains. JLK is providing their architectural expertise in historic bridge rehabilitation to this project which will overhaul the historic structure to last another 100 years. This will include reconstruction of the deteriorated bridge houses, installation of historic handrails, and new historically-appropriate sidewalk lighting. All work will be crafted to follow the Secretary of the Interior’s Standards and be coordinated with the State Historic Preservation Office.
