It was standing room only at the Trails and Bikeways workshop when more than fifty northwest side residents filled Gompers Park Fieldhouse on May 25. They rolled up their sleeves in small groups and recommended ways to improve trails and off-street bike routes.

Saturday’s groundbreaking on the Lakefront Trail was a great moment for everyone who enjoys one of Chicago’s most beloved — but extremely congested — public spaces.
For Saturday’s event, I joined Mayor Rahm Emanuel, local philanthropist Ken Griffin, Chicago Park District Superintendent Michael Kelly, Alderman Michelle Smith and others to mark the beginning of a project that will create separate trail spaces for people biking and walking on the Lakefront Trail between North Avenue and Fullerton (see photo).
