Flyover - Active Trans published an update on the progress with a link to CDOT's project page:

The Chicago Department of Transportation’s (CDOT) Navy Pier Flyover pro... is the best resource for the latest news. The city also recently released a more detailed construction timeline:

  • Phase 1 from Jane Addams Park to Ogden Slip is nearing completion.
  • Phase 2 from Ogden Slip to the Chicago River is scheduled to get underway in summer 2017 and be completed in fall 2018, at which time the first two phases will open to the public.
  • Phase 3 over the Chicago River is scheduled to start in fall 2017 and be complete by the end of 2018. The Flyover portion of the work on the bridge will be complete by the end of 2018 with additional bridge work to continue through spring 2019. 

Gene added a forum post about an upcoming closure:

The effort to make the Lakefront Trail less congested by creating separate paths for cyclists and joggers will force a portion of the popular path to close starting May 22, city officials said.

The trail will be closed east of Lake Shore Drive between Diversey Parkway and North Avenue starting May 22, according to a statement from Mayor Rahm Emanuel's office. A marked detour will take trail users west of Lake Shore Drive, officials said.

Construction will also take place from Oak to Ohio streets, where a lane will allow cyclists and joggers to navigate around the crews, officials said.
