"Begin Final Link of Ogden Avenue Drive This Week," 1934

The improvement of northern Ogden Avenue was part of a citywide highway upgrade that emerged after the recommendations of the Burnham Plan of 1909. In late 1934, the completion of ramps to the Ogden Avenue viaduct connected Goose Island businesses to that "fast arterial highway," as described in this Chicago Tribune article from November 26, 1934.
