Welcome to the first VirtualRide on an arterial road! This is part 1 of 4 of a series on Ogden Avenue in Chicago going westbound towards the West Suburbs. We start just north of Chicago Ave and pass through Chicago’s West Loop and Near West Side crossing the Kennedy and Eisenhower Expys along with passing near the United Center. We then pass through the Illinois Medical District near the former Cook County Hospital (there’s now another hospital there) where some scenes of The Fugitive (1993, Harrison Ford and Tommy Lee Jones) were filmed. After crossing Western Ave, we enter Chicago’s North Lawndale community area in the West Side. We pass through Douglas Park (where Chicago’s Riot Fest is set) and then several more blocks before entering Cicero, IL. We pass underneath Metra’s BNSF Railway and pass next to the Cicero Station along BNSF’s Cicero Yard. From that point, we pass through the remainder of Cicero and then enter Berwyn before reaching Harlem Ave (IL Route 43) where the video ends.
You will notice that once we reach the proximity of Adams St that Historic U.S. Route 66 begins and we follow along that route for the rest of the way to Harlem Ave.
