Complete Street-i-fication of Broadway: Open House 10/30/13!

The Alderman’s office is hosting an Open House for people interested in the planned Complete Street treatments on Broadway Avenue, including protected bike lanes. Come to the event next Wednesday, Oct. 30, from 5 PM–7 PM, at the 46th Ward Office to learn more. We’re not sure if the Alderman’s office is working hard to market this or drive turnout, but from our perspective, it’s important that supporters come to the open house to show the Alderman and his staff that we are excited about this infrastructure!

From the Alderman’s web calendar:

“Protected bike lanes will be coming to the 46th Ward within the next month! This new type of bike lane is planned for Broadway between Montrose and Ainslie. Representatives from CDOT will be in the ward office to answer any questions from residents and business owners on Wednesday, October 30 from 5-7 p.m. in the 46th Ward Office, 4544 N.Broadway. The project will redesign the roadway to ensure all roadway users – pedestrians, transit users, bicyclists, and motorists – can travel safely along and across the street, regardless of age or ability.”

The full presentation from August’s public meeting can be found here.
