Chicago will soon decide whether to install protected bike lanes on Milwaukee Ave. this spring between Elston and Kinzie, as the first stretch of safety improvements that will eventually extend all the way to Devon.
By creating more order on an often chaotic and hazardous street, protected bike lanes would make Milwaukee Ave. safer for everyone, whether you are walking, biking or driving.
Consolidating some parking may be required to create a safer street, and that's worth it. Unfortunately, barrier-protected bike lanes could be left out of improvement plans as the city assesses how to use limited street space. Please sign the petition telling Chicago city officials to install barrier-protected bike lanes on Milwaukee Ave.
