Wacker Drive, Chicago

Wacker Drive is a major street in Chicago, Illinois, United States, running along the downtown side of the Chicago River. The vast majority of it is double-decked; the upper level is intended for local traffic, and the lower level for through traffic and trucks servicing buildings on the road (and originally a dock).

It is sometimes cited as a precursor to the modern freeway, though when built the idea was that pleasure vehicles would use the upper level.

In the video you can see the construction of the new Trump Tower.
