Transportation Advocates and Community Leaders Praise City for Installing the Loop’s First Protected Bike Lane on Dearborn Street

CHICAGO (November 30, 2012) The Active Transportation Alliance, Chicagoland’s voice for better biking, walking and transit, praises Mayor Rahm Emanuel, 42nd Ward Alderman Brendan Reilly and 2nd Ward Alderman Bob Fioretti for installing the Loop’s first protected bike lane on Dearborn Street. The Chicago Department of Transportation announced today that it will stripe the new 1.15-mile bikeway this weekend.

After the announcement of the Dearborn bikeway in August, nearly 4,700 people signed a petition supporting the project. By staying on schedule to complete the project before the New Year, the mayor is keeping his commitment to create safer streets where Chicagoans of all ages can bike safely and comfortably in their neighborhoods.
