Chicago Pedway System Scavenger Hunt & Happy Hour

April 26, 2018

YPT-Chicago and APBP Chicagoland invite members, friends, and the public to participate in the Chicago Pedway System Scavenger Hunt!

The Pedway was born in 1951, when the City of Chicago built one-block tunnels connecting the Red Line and Blue Line subways at Washington Street and Jackson Boulevard. Since then, both public and private investment have expanded the Pedway, and the system now connects more than 50 buildings over a 5-mile labyrinth-like array of underground tunnels and bridges. Join us in exploring an iconic part of Chicago’s downtown transportation infrastructure!

This is a great opportunity for teamwork, networking, and learning more about some of Chicago’s hidden underground gems. Participants may come in teams, or by themselves. Everybody will be assigned to a team the day of the event.
