|The protected bike lane on Kinzie Street in Chicago.|
Evanston aldermen voted 7-2 earlier this week to seek a federal grant to turn Church Street into a model of "best practices" for an urban roadway.
The roadway would include off-street and on-street bike facilities and a separate lane for bike traffic shielded from auto traffic by a parking lane. The city would provide local matching money.
Rest assured, your Active Trans North Suburban coordinator spoke on behalf of this application at the city council meeting.
