399158 05: Workers reconstruct an intersection along old upper and lower Wacker Drive near the Franklin-Orleans Street bascule bridge January 2, 2002 in Chicago. Many drivers who frequently traverse Chicagos downtown “Loop” area had to make a New Years resolution to adjust their routes as the second half of the $200 million “Revive Wacker Drive” project began just in time for the January 2, 2002 morning rush hour. Set to be completed in November of 2002, the project will reconstruct the oldest and most deteriorated segments of upper and lower Wacker Drive, which is the east-west leg between Chicagos Michigan Avenue and Randolph Street.
