Chicago On Track to Add 100 Miles of Bike Lanes
Chicago (October 4, 2021) – Aiming to reverse its reputation as one of the least friendly big cities for bicyclists, the Chicago Department of Transportation (CDOT) announced that it’s on track to add 100 miles of new bike lanes. The new lanes are part of the “Chicago Works” improvement plan, which has $17 million slated for bike lane expansion over the next two years.
By extending and improving Chicago’s network of bike lanes, CDOT aims to add convenience and reduce bicycle accidents. By the end of 2022, CDOT expects to have roughly 400 miles of bike lanes for Chicagoans and visitors to enjoy. Lerner and Rowe hopes that you do what you can to avoid Chicago bike accidents while the project is underway. Source: CDOT
