Did You Know?

About one-third of all work trips in Chicago are comprised of people biking, walking, or riding public transit.

It's not too late to help redefine North Lake Shore Drive!


UPDATE: Deadline for submitting comments and task force applications is Friday, Aug. 30, 2013.

Since we announced a bold vision for the future of the lakefront shared by a coalition of 15 organizations, the idea of better meeting the needs of everyone who uses the lakefront has really been gaining traction with the public and the press (Chicago TribuneChicago Sun-TimesWBEZStreetsblogNext City, WTTW Chicago Tonight).

Most exciting though has been seeing Active Trans members showing up at the public meetings and making your voices heard! Your input is critical to shaping projects like this.

You can still get involved to help ensure that the reconstruction of North Lake Shore Drive will make our lakefront more people-friendly!

The first round of public meetings for the project will wrap up tonight, but even if you couldn't make it to a meeting, there are opportunties to participate.

Public meeting tonight:

Peggy Notebaert Nature Museum
2430 North Cannon Drive, South Gallery
Thursday, August 8, 2013
Open house: 6 – 8 p.m.

Three other ways to participate:
