Decades of research shows that expanding roads doesn’t provide lasting congestion relief. More lanes means more traffic.

47th Ward supporters: Attend the Berteau Greenway public meeting Aug. 16

Chicago’s first neighborhood greenway has been proposed for Berteau Ave. (from Clark to Lincoln). This would be a great addition to the neighborhood for residents as well as for people who walk and bike.

We encourage you to thank Alderman Pawar for supporting this project and reinforce to your neighbors that we need to make walking and biking a safer, easier option for getting around. The alderman issued the following meeting announcement yesterday.

Berteau Greenway Public Meeting
Thurs., August 16
6:00 PM – 7:30 p.m.
Welles Park Gym
2333 W. Sunnyside Avenue

Chicago Department of Transportation (CDOT) and 47th Ward staff will present final concepts for the proposed Berteau Neighborhood Greenway. The goal of this project is to improve safety on Berteau, between Lincoln and Clark, and create a roadway that is more comfortable for all modes of transportation.

The concepts being presented will reflect public input gathered at previous community meetings. All are welcome to attend in the community meeting room at the Welles Park Gymnasium. There will be a short presentation beginning at 6:20 followed by an open house to review the draft plans.
