"Correct. It looks like the the plan shows that the existing seawall will become the new "pedestrian path" and the current path will become the bike path.
It'll be interesting to see if pedestrians/joggers actually use the seawall, or…"
"The Washington PBLs are particularly bad for this too, as peds wander out onto the bus islands while waiting for the light to change. Pretty much every intersection during rush hour requires some amount of slowing down and warning peds as you bike…"
"I really appreciate the work that Christina Whitehouse has put into this effort. I believe the data will be useful and persuasive for DOT's to plan bike infrastructure improvements, plus I find photographing and reporting individuals who block…"
"I rode through here a few weeks ago early in the morning and all the pedestrian lights were switched off. It was pitch black and I nearly ran into the fence/gate across the path at the south end of this section because I couldn't see it (even…"
"Unfortunately, many drivers seem to think that a few feet in front of you is "safely clear" and at that point they're free to change lanes/turn/slam on their brakes as they please, and it's the cyclists job to avoid…"
"The project website has information and a comment form (under "contact us") where you can comment on the proposed plans as well. This project includes a significant redesign of the Lake Front Trail from Grand to Hollywood and you can view…"
"Totally agree. I rode through here the other morning around 6am and was surprised to find long stretches where the pathway lighting was not turned on. I'm assuming the Park District is working on the lighting as part of the trail separation…"
"More bikes on the roads is a good thing. I don't really care if they have electric motors or not. I also don't see any problem with sharing our bike lanes & paths with electric scooters, skateboards, etc as long as they're…"
"I noticed this problem just this morning near McCormick Place where the LFT is detoured onto the sea-wall. The pavement was wet and it was dark, so you couldn't really tell. I didn't see anyone go down, but can see how it would happen.…"
"CDOT (not streets and san) plows the Clybourn protected bike lanes with a pickup truck + plow. The PBL is wide enough (7.5') to fit a standard pickup truck. The width also accommodates a street sweeper.
I'm not sure what happens on…"
"I pass stopped cars on the right often as I'm approaching stoplights (shoaling, I guess?). As soon as the light turns green and/or cars start moving, I merge into the travel lane and ride with traffic until we're past the…"
