The CTA has released its Environmental Assessment for the Flyover, complete with new misleading illustrations & fanciful videos filled with pretend buildings. But the destruction to Lakeview is hard to miss – even with the smoke and mirrors. Some examples:
Here’s Clark Street, with imagined buildings that won’t fit on the lots left after Flyover construction.
Clark St. again, this time without fake buildings. Just a view of the Skyway-style Flyover – now pushed way, way off in the distance somehow.
A close-up of the Flyover, now just scraping over the Red & Purple lines, no room for trains. And a new building imagined squeezed between the tracks.
