Active Trans' efforts to create separate lakefront trails for people on bikes and people on foot has paid off.
This became evident when Mayor Emanuel revealed that the Chicago Park District will pursue the separated trail plan on two of the most congested portions of the Lakefront Trail.

The 606 and the Bloomingdale Trail, Chicago’s new rail-to-trail and park project, made national headlines when it opened up this summer, and in just a few short weeks established itself as one of Chicago’s most popular public spaces.
The overwhelming success of the trail leads to an immediate and obvious question: where can we put more trails?
Several great candidates already exist.

Helping make the Lakefront Trail safer and more convenient for everyone who uses it has been a priority of Active Trans for decades. As anyone who uses the trail knows, jumping on the trail for a run, a stroll or a bike ride too often means being confronted with heavy congestion and potential conflict with fellow trail users.
