"Not if it dumps me smack dab in the middle of an asphalt plant or a cement plant. Nice idea but wrong location."

"I would cross it just to say I crossed it, but since it's being privately funded by a developer... the odds this actually happens are pretty slim."

"I might use it on occasion. I think it would be most useful to me if I was commuting to a job on Goose Island."

"I'm guessing the curve in the middle is inspired by Copenhagen's wildly successful Snake Bridge, which provides shifting views of the skyline while crossing. As it's proposed to be installed by the developer, I'm guessing this…"

"Personally I'd rather see the two Division St. bridges improved to form a decent East/West route over the stretch of river between Kinzie and Wilson. That said I'm happy to see any improvments to river crossings, even if this route is sort…"

"Chicago Ave is terrible, not just the bridge. From Wells all the way to Damen(usually all that I would ride, but there's probably more). The bridge is really bad. I remember earlier this year, when everyone, not just cyclists, complained about…"

KevinM replied to Louis K's discussion New Goose Island ped/bike bridge - will you use it?
"The Chicago Ave bridge is so bad, I choose to take the sidewalk and ride down four steps to avoid it every day. Division St near the river is even worse. I would definitely use a new bridge, but I'd rather have the current bridges…"
