The Chicago Department of Transportation (CDOT), in partnership with the Mayor’s Bicycle Advisory Council, announced today that it is hosting another round of public meetings for the Streets for Cycling Plan 2020 to give Chicagoans an opportunity to review and comment on the draft 2020 network.
The purpose of the Streets for Cycling Plan 2020 is to identify roadways throughout the City for innovative bicycle facilities so that all Chicagoans, from children riding to school to senior citizens riding to the grocery store, can feel safe and comfortable bicycling on our streets.
“CDOT incorporated many of the ideas residents shared in several meetings last winter about where they bike, where they want improvements and what would encourage them to cycle,” said CDOT Commissioner Gabe Klein. “The information and feedback they have provided has been invaluable in creating our future bike network.”
In addition to viewing the draft 2020 network, those attending the public meetings will see possible street treatments and proposed bike facilities, and hear about the remaining challenges and next steps for the Streets for Cycling Plan 2020.
The four public meetings and two online webinars are scheduled for the following dates and locations:
Webinar space is limited. After registering, participants will receive a confirmation email containing information about joining the Webinar.
