Print Print this Article | Send to Colleague

A few months ago, E-NEWS relayed news of the city of Chicago's Green Streets program, which emphasized, among other things, the use of pervious concrete to address stormwater runoff concerns. Now city officials are touting what it calls the "Greenest Street in America" in the Pilsen Neighborhood, describing it as "an unprecedented demonstration of how cutting-edge sustainable design and 'complete streets' principles can be implemented in the public right of way." Officials state that the $14 million streetscape project is the first in the country to balance and incorporate such a wide spectrum of sustainable performance into a single urban roadway.
