The planned Central Avenue tunnel under Burbank's rail yard between 65th Street and 72nd Street could be a huge north-south improvement for cyclists and pedestrians through a tough to cross—by any means—area...IF cyclists are heard early in the process.
The Illinois Department of Transportation is listening! Tomorrow, Feb. 17 between 3 p.m. and 7 p.m., you can tell IDOT to include better bicycling and pedestrian facilities in their Central Avenue bypass plans.
What: Central Avenue Bypass Public Hearing
When: Thursday, 2/17, 3 p.m.–7 p.m.
Where: St. Laurence High School, 5556 W. 77th St., Burbank
This isn't a meet on Thursday, start on Sunday kind of project. Think $300–400 million, years and years of studies and funding battles...
...like the I-355...
