"They're doing work on the bridge that goes past the UIC Halsted blue line stop over there. The bike lane is effectively eliminated over that bridge and it is rather treacherous. "

Gopher Biker replied to in it to win it 8.0 mi's discussion I rode today. Did you?
"Elston is still pretty rough this morning - took the lane from N. Central Ave. to Milwaukee for much of my ride in (granted this was at 5am so not too many cars to deal with).  Be careful out there it is very slick in many spots."

Gopher Biker replied to Adam Herstein's discussion What traffic violations did you witness today?
"Around 5:45am, I saw an SUV run the red light on Elston at Fry and then ignore the red light at Elston/Milwaukee when making a left turn onto Milwaukee. Then I was shoaled by two ninja fixie bikers as they ran the red light at Milwaukee and Chicago."
