Randolph bike lane between Clinton and canal

"That's a valid concern.  The past couple of years the park district has been really good about keeping the path plowed and salted all winter long.  Hopefully this won't impact that. I commute on the path every weekday. "

"I am a bit concerned that the barriers will inhibit snow removal from the path once that becomes necessary."

"As I rode it yesterday, I was thinking these barriers might just help to keep spray from LSD from dumping onto the bike path, as opposed to water/snow blowing over from the lake to LSD. "

"There are barriers along Sheridan Road above Lake Shore Drive. At Sheridan Beach and at Rosemont which dead-ends into the lake. I've been living up there for thirteen years now and haven't ever seen a storm come close to threatening…"

"It does make a very small run-off area completely unavailable. Water hasn't hit the drive like that since the Halloween storm five(?) years ago."

"Nothing from Uber, not surprising to me, they suck. Maybe Lyft could tell I had an account with them and Uber could see I don't have one with them."

"That should be the case, but it isn't always. When I contacted Flood Brothers, and spoke with the owner, he basically told me to go pound sand. He believes their drivers' safety is important, and our safety isn't. Thus, he…"

"Agreed, I've always thought the direct to the company route is faster and more responsive.  Their give-a-darn factor is higher too.  Despite what comes out of CDOT (See the west-bound Randolph bike lane, etc) companies are more…"

"I think it helps a lot if you have a photo or video, but yes, you can submit a complaint with just a plate number and a description of what happened!"
