Lake Shore Drive inspires a lot of passion in this city. Some see it as a beautiful highway with excellent scenery, others view it as a blight on precious lakefront property. Like it or not, LSD is here to stay between Hollywood and 63rd. Some Rogers Parks activists are working to make sure that Rogers Park doesn't suffer the same fate of high-rises, highway underpasses, and traffic noise through a November ballot measure. Even though CDOT has no plans to extend the Drive, it seems that the possibility exists.
