"Perhaps. In theory, Washington is another good way to get to my office, but I found it difficult with the amount of snow in the bike lanes, and lack of room to maneuver in traffic."

Mike Schwab replied to Cheryl's discussion Kinzie Street Bridge Closure
"Detour routes are to get you to the same street on the other side of the closure.  Usually routed so the detoured traffic doesn't cross each other, so right, left, left, right onto original street.  Doesn't offer a left or right…"

"Grand and Lake are both 0.3 miles north/south of Kinzie St. I guess it depends on whether one is heading south into the Loop, or north from Kinzie. If one is Loop-bound, then heading south to Lake St makes more sense."

"Agree with Argonne69. There's no reason an able-bodied person cannot be dropped off more than a couple inches from their destination, or that delivery persons can't use a dolly to make deliveries from further down the block. Most times I…"

Cheryl replied to Yasmeen's discussion What's this doing in the bike lane?
"The delivery trucks for Alfa Restaurant Supply, 4218 N. Elston, are back in the bike lane instead of using the loading docks. It's a very tight spot to try to go around trucks blocking the bike lane. Reported to 311.  "

"I don't find the Mailwaukee Ave at Elston too worrying as there is a distinct light for right turns for motor traffic. Fullerton and Damen, though - I've seen several near right hooks there, and I wish they would put a separate signal for…"

Cheryl replied to Yasmeen's discussion What's this doing in the bike lane?
"YES! I'm afraid I don't have any constructive suggestions on how to address this, but I agree it needs to be addressed. There are several of these along Elston - either a mountain or a crater."
