A new sustainable project called the Eco- Bridge is about to get started. This new structure is destined to become a breakwater in the Monroe Harbor and also, will provide recreational spaces for city residents and for tourists.
The bridge will measure two miles and will calm the water to allow rowing and sailing, and will bound the opposite ends of Chicago’s center and the Grant Park. Into the Eco-Bridge, there will be integrated several wind turbines with the purpose of adding economic value and to put to account the “love” that Chicago has for sustainable structures. On center of the bridge there will be placed an observation tower where the visitors will see some incredible views of the city.
