Design Area: Loomis to Hoyne and Ashland, 43rd Street to 49th Street
New City, consisting of the Canaryville and Back of the Yards neighborhoods, is one of 12 key commercial corridors in the 10 communities – the “front doors” to the neighborhoods – INVEST South/West collectively supports infrastructure development as a part of the initial phase of Mayor Lightfoot’s INVEST South/West commercial corridor improvement strategy. Based on feedback received at the INVEST South/West kick off meeting, the priority focus is the intersection of 47th Street and Ashland Avenue and adjacent blocks.
The scope of this CDOT led project includes streetscape improvements on Loomis to Hoyne and Ashland, 43rd Street to 49th Street. The project will provide safe, walkable, and attractive streets that will foster community and economic growth. This effort will support the INVEST South/West initiative to re-activate neighborhood cores that have historically served as focal points for pedestrian activity, shopping, services, transportation, public spaces and quality-of life amenities for local residents.
