St. Charles Air Line Bridge Project

Canadian National (CN) is proposing the full renovation of the track and viaducts it owns along the St. Charles Air Line, which runs approximately along 16th Street between Clark St. and Indiana Ave. The scope of the project would include full renovation of the bridges at Clark St., Dearborn Ave., State St., Wabash Ave., and Michigan Ave. As this projects would have considerable impact on the community. Alderman Dowell has asked CN to work with the neighborhood to make sure resident concerns and input is taken into account before moving forward with the project.
