    plan cover
    This Chicago Riverwalk Main Branch Framework Plan establishes guidelines for the construction of a continuous walkway from Lake Michigan to Lake Street along the water’s edge, ramp and elevator improvements to establish universal access between street and river levels, loading and storage spaces to support river business operations, and landscape and hardscape improvements to attract people, plants and animals to the river corridor. This plan also includes conceptual designs for the creation of two new destinations to anchor the east and west ends of the Main Branch Riverwalk.
