    The Trust for Public Land: The 606: Building Connections

    Friday, Oct 18, 2013 3:00 - 6:00 PM @ The Kimball Arts Center
    This event is over! Please check the 2021 schedule.
    LAB - Labs bring together small groups for an exclusive, first-hand look into what happens behind the scenes at some of the most innovative companies, community leaders and institutions around Chicago.

    The 606 is Chicago's most innovative public works project. Anchored by five access parks, this three-mile elevated freight line will transform into a linear trail. Attendees will have a hard-hat tour of the trail, followed by a workshop discussing the engineering, landscape architecture and arts and community engagement work that will turn an embankment dividing neighborhoods into a community connector and green transportation corridor.

    Hosted By: Beth White, Chicago Region Director, The Trust for Public Land
