|Proposed 11½ mile double deck bridge and causeway by architect Mark D. Kalischer.|
Kalischer said that monorail cars, automatically operated, could provide even faster service at 80 to 85 miles per hour from a Grant Park terminal in eight minutes allowing for one stop at Montrose Avenue in Chicago and then on to Evanston.
The second phase of the multi-purpose lake highway would also be built southward towards Indiana.
The architect said the double decking would permit the lower four lane highway could be used as a bomb shelter. Kalischer proposed 100 foot bridge spans approximately 28 feet over the waterline.
