Monroe Busway Feasibility Study
Owner: Chicago Park District
Location: Chicago, IL
The Chicago Department of Transportation conducted a feasibility study for the extension of the Monroe Busway under the Art Institute and Metra rail tracks to the existing Lakefront Busway. The extension was accomplished without disturbing the Monroe Street Bridge over the commuter rail lines. Furthermore, the planning effort accommodated the Art Institute's proposal to construct a new building on the site of the old Goodman Theatre.
IEI developed and analyzed roadway geometrics for both the Michigan Avenue to Lakefront Busway and Clinton Street to Michigan Avenue feasibility studies.
