The Bloomingdale Rail Line Converted Into Greenway/Linear Park Chicago

November 9, 2012

Transforming retired railroad lines is a new trend within cities. As you might remember the same type of transformation also took place in New York: Click here to see the post.

CDOT, along with numerous community partners, is constructing the Bloomingdale Trail and Park-- a multi-use linear park that will be the first of its kind in Chicago.

The trail and park will run along an abandoned, elevated rail line along Bloomingdale Avenue (approximately 1800 North) from Ashland (1600 West) to Ridgeway (3732 West).

Stretching 2.7 miles through four energetic Chicago northwest side neighborhoods, the conversion of the elevated Bloomingdale Line into a trail and park supplies remarkable connections to and among these communities.


The upcoming Bloomingdale Trail and Park runs through several vibrant communities along Bloomingdale Avenue, nearby to numerous private properties, and crosses over major arterials, an historic boulevard, bus and bicycle routes, and the CTA Blue Line.

The project is expected to continue throughout 2013, possibly lasting much longer. Estimated costs are from $50 million - $70 million.
