The Windy City dyes their river green for St. Patrick's Day, but that's not all that goes green. A two mile bridge in the Monroe Harbor will cement Chicago's position as the Greenest City in the U.S. It will provide space for wind turbines to provide economic value to a recreational source. Chicago hopes to host the 2016 Olympics and is using this project in their bid. The proposed Chicago 'Eco-Bridge' completes the last major recommendation of the 1909 Burnham Plan of Chicago in a thoroughly modern way that celebrates Chicago's future as well as its past.
