Bad news: The 606 will not be opening this fall

The revamped Bloomingdale Trail's delay counts as yet another thing to blame on the polar vortex

The 606 will stretch from Wicker Park to Logan Square.

The 606 will stretch from Wicker Park to Logan Square.

As if you needed more reason to curse the brutality of this past winter, it's now responsible for pushing back the opening of The 606 till June 2015. Originally slated to open this fall, the 2.7-mile park and trail system that's taking over an abandoned railway has been delayed due to frozen ground and a spring that never really arrived, according to a Tribune story posted last night.

To soften the blow, officials announced the addition of a 4-acre park along the trail in Logan Square, a neighborhood seriously lacking in green space. So when's that going to open? In two freakin' years. Patience, people. Patience.
