CDOT Hosts Streets for Cycling Plan 2020 Open House

Lawndale News Chicago's Bilingual Newspaper - BusinessThe Chicago Department of Transportation (CDOT), in partnership with the Chicago Loop Alliance and the Mayor’s Bicycle Advisory Council, is hosting an open house for the Streets for Cycling Plan 2020. The Streets for Cycling Plan 2020 will identify roadways throughout Chicago for bicycle facilities to provide Chicagoans, from children riding to school to senior citizens riding to the grocery store, a safe and comfortable experience bicycling on city streets. CDOT has partnered with eighteen community advisors to gather additional input from their communities to heighten grassroots involvement in this process outside of the public meeting. The Open House event will feature maps of nine city sections allowing citizens to point out existing conditions such as barriers, destinations, gaps in the system and assets in their communities. Similar opportunities for comment and plan information will be provided at each of the public meetings and webinars.
