Chicago is at the stage of considering whether they should turn their underground tunnels into a tourist attraction of sorts. The tunnels, called Pedways, are provided as weather proof walkways.
The nonprofit Environmental Law and Policy Center brought up the idea of giving them a makeover to increase their popularity. That makeover could include building a library, art galleries, and even farmer’s markets.
The ELPC’s executive director Howard Learner spoke out about moving forward with the idea.
“The Chicago Pedway is an already-built, yet currently underutilized, civic asset; with improved navigation tools, upgraded lighting and coordination, and cultural activation, the revitalized Pedway will help Chicagoans and visitors to get around and be an exciting downtown experience.”
