Bike Lane Improvements

May 10, 2019. Alderman King called a meeting at Grace Place on Tuesday evening at 6pm to discuss upgrades to the Bike Lanes in the South Loop. It addressed concerns by residents voiced two years ago when bike lanes were originally proposed. Since then, the Dearborn St. two-way bike lane has been constructed. The bike lanes on Harrison approaching State Street will have concrete curbs placed to define the lanes and protect the bikers. The Dearborn St. two-way bike lanes will be extended to the south side of Polk going east to Plymouth and will continue as a two-way path. Signage will be added to direct bikers to turn south on Plymouth and continue to 9th Street east along 9th on the south side to the lake. This portion of the route will not have concrete curbs and will not be painted, only signs.
