BikeCheck out some photos taken just last week! The larger construction project includes repaving as well to enhance this great North Shore roadway for motorists, cyclists, and pedestrians.

Please remember to ride safely and obey the rules of road as several municipalities in the North Suburbs have received complaints about bicyclists disobeying traffic signals and blocking the road. Please remember that bicyclists have the same rights as motorists to be on the road and are subject to the same duties applicable to a motorist.
