Greening the Chicago River

On a slow news weekend in October last year, the news in Chicago was all about the river, specifically a sunken barge and the filming of Insurgent, the sequel to Divergent. As ABC7 reported in regards to the latter:
Saturday morning, the five bridges from Dearborn to Columbus were raised as a helicopter flew low close to the water.

With Insurgent being released in theaters on March 20, and therefore trailers and commercials hitting the airwaves and interwebs, we're finally being treated to the result of the low-flying helicopter:

Sorry, Rahm. It looks like all your work on the Chicago Riverwalk will be for naught, as the whole river will become one big, sunken walkway.
