CTA crosses the Chicago River or its branch on two bridges near the
Loop. Brown and Purple Line trains to and from the north use the
Wells St. bridge, shown here. Green Line trains to and from the
west use the bridge over Lake St.
In this view buildings of various vintages line
the river. Those to the right of the water are lined up along Wacker Dr. To the
left, one of the two rounded towers of Marina City, a tall apartment
complex considered highly innovative in the 1960s, is mostly visible. There is a tremendous amount of new construction and renovation
going on in this part of the city.
