The Loop Link Project may Have Value

It is easy to dismiss the Loop Link Project.  Taking a lane on a busy Downtown Chicago street and giving it over completely to buses sounds like it very well might be a recipe for worsening congestion.  There have been articles and comments posted online which suggest it is not contributing anything positive.

Traffic is moving along nicely.  One video alone is not enough to judge the project a success.  And they certainly should not have poured any money into this at all while City pension funds are in dire straits.  But it is not a disaster, and in the long run may prove to have some value.
