Are you a 39th Ward resident who wants to improve neighborhood trails and bikeways? Do you have ideas about how to create safe and accessible connections?
The 39th Ward -- represented by Alderman Margaret Laurino -- contains a large section of the Chicago River on the far Northwest Side. So, needless to say, it's going to be a key part of the campaign to develop a continuous Chicago River Trail.
Please join us for a community workshop with Ald. Laurino to learn about proposed projects and to share your ideas for improving trails and bike routes.

Can you imagine having trail access to Chicago’s diverse neighborhoods and the suburbs as a bicyclist or runner?
Did you know the Chicago River already has 13.2 miles of trails for biking and walking and that the city will complete an additional 1.7 trail miles in 2017?
We couldn’t be more excited for the next steps in the campaign to build a continuous Chicago River Trail. It's energizing to think about the river trail's potential to promote the city's cultural life.

Imagine bicycling or walking along the Chicago River in the presence of beautiful trees and lush green vegetation. Along the trail you encounter turtles and butterflies and hear birds chirping in the warm sunlight.
Wouldn’t it be great to bicycle and run along the river in such a scenic environment? A step toward bringing more of this vision to Chicago happened at a recent public meeting at River Park in the Albany Park neighborhood.

With Ken Griffin’s $12 million donation secured, the Chicago Park District plans to create separated trail space for people biking and people walking between West Fullerton Street and East Ohio Street this spring.
The North Side segment is part of a larger project to create separate paths along the full length of the 18-mile Lakefront Trail by the end of 2018, as Mayor Emanuel announced last December.

Part of the task of building a continuous Chicago River Trail means ensuring that other local trails connect to it and ensuring that access from local streets is safe and easy.
We took a step in the direction of creating a well connected Chicago River Trail recently when Chicago residents called on the city to finish the Weber Spur Trail on the city's Northwest Side.
The Weber Spur Trail (depicted on the map in the straight dotted line) will provide a key link to the river trail.
