“Nice, but not special”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed November 8, 2012

The bridge does what it should i.e. gets people over the river. I suppose it's got some architectural merit, but it doesn't impress me. We've got similar bridges downtown.

“A double decked bridge”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed October 16, 2012

Two levels of traffic cross over the Chicago River at this bridge. Michigan Avenue above, and a turn off of Lower Wacker Drive. Right near the Wrigley Building, the Tribune Tower, and Trump Tower. The Magnificent Mile starts here and goes north.

“Nice Bridge”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed October 9, 2012

One of many nice bridges in Chicago. Nice views from the bridge. Take a river cruise and get a better view. The river cruise starts at Navy Pier.

“It's not a pretty bridge...”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed September 19, 2012

...but it does have that quintessential Chicago view. The buildings and the river. So pretty. Take your camera and go at twilight.
