Cermak Road-Blue Island Avenue Sustainable Streetscape Enters Phase III

Chicago’s first “sustainable streetscape” along Cermak and Blue Island from Halsted to Wolcott is entering Phase III of its four-phase schedule, projected to be completed this summer. The project will use several environmentally friendly techniques, including, recycled construction waste, reduced energy with reflective surfaces, and dark-sky friendly light fixtures, storm water management that prevents water rain water from backing up sewers, new ADA compliant sidealks and ramps, improved bus stops, lighting, added bike lanes and bike racks. This is just one example of how Alderman Solis is committed to the greening of the 25th Ward!
