Sprouting of a Greenway

Long on the drawing boards, the Salt Creek Greenway is coming to life. The 35-mile trail will run from northern Cook County through eastern DuPage County back into south-central Cook County. A portion now under construction goes through Villa Park and Elmhurst in the tight corridor near St. Charles Road and Route 83. I checked out the progress and got this shot of one of two new bridges dropped into place on Thursday just south of St. Charles Road. I'm not too spoiled. I'll soon have three trails within a mile of the house: Illinois Prairie, Great Western and Salt Creek. For more info on the Salt Creek Trail, check out:
