Did you know that 17 of the Chicago River's 27 miles will have trails by the end of 2018?
With trails taking shape as quickly as they are, it's urgent we push for improvements that create safe walking and biking options for accessing the river.
One area where we're working on better access to the Chicago River Trail is on Logan Blvd. from Rockwell Ave. to Lathrop Homes.
If you've ever biked or walked along this stretch, you know how perilous it can be for people walking and biking.
This is where we'd love your input. Are you familiar with this part of Logan? Do you live, commute through or shop in this area? What changes would you like to see?
Please take our nine-question survey and share widely with your friends, family and colleagues.
Taking the survey will demonstrate your support for fixing Logan Blvd., and help build consensus around project recommendations that will be presented to the city and inform Active Trans' advocacy agenda.
The input of residents and stakeholders is crucial to developing high-quality recommendations that reflect neighborhood priorities. This is especially true for Logan Blvd. and its diverse mix of residents, as well as its aldermanic districts, big box stores, entertainment venues, schools, churches and public housing.
This project provides an opportunity to improve safety at Logan and Western, an interesection in dire need of safety upgrades. This junction serves as a major obstacle to people trying to walk and bike in the area, and has been a place where people biking and walking have been killed by drivers.
It doesn't have to be this way. Click here to take the survey and show support for making Logan safer for bicyclists and pedestrians.
Thank you for your support. If you have questions/comments, please contact Steve Simmons, [email protected]
Survey participants will be added to the Chicago River Trail campaign and receive project updates.
