It was a little mysterious when the Chicago Department of Transportation (CDOT)
recently removed more than half of the flexible posts (AKA bollards) that separate
the Kinzie protected bike lanes from parked cars and moving traffic. So I called
CDOT bikeways planner Mike Amsden, to get the skinny. He explained the motivations
for taking out the posts, and also pointed out a few recent upgrades to the street
I hadn’t noticed before:
Keep moving forward,
+1 Kayaks, yeah, lotsa kayaks. ;)
How about a really thin boathouse that extends several miles down at least one side of Western Avenue, with cars on the left and bikes on the right?
No kayaks -those are SOOOO last year.
-Rowing shells are all all the folks are using these days. Don't you have one?
