CHICAGO: 2 Rogers Park Beaches Devastated During Weekend Storm

Late last year, crews for the city worked to protect the Rogers Park shoreline from a rising Lake Michigan while preserving some of the last remaining beachfront at two neighborhood parks. 

But after a major storm last weekend devastated lakefront areas throughout Chicago, city officials have determined that the beaches at Rogers and Howard park are no longer salvageable. They will instead be replaced with rocks, with a dream of someday restoring the beaches, but that could take years.
