Chicago’s first protected bike lane on Kinzie St. increased ridership by 55 percent without increasing traffic congestion for cars.

Lakefront Trail Conditions 1/20

We have not had warm enough weather yet to melt the significant ice just south of Fullerton or around the Oak Street Bend. The dirt path to the west of the Trail, just south of Fullerton, is firm and in good condition for a brief detour in that area.

The Oak Street Bend to Ohio Street alternative is typically Inner Lake Shore Drive via the Oak St. and Ohio St. underpasses. Both underpasses are in good shape.

The only other ice between Ardmore and Museum Campus is north of Foster. That ice, however, is patchy and if you are careful and ride in a straight line over the brief icy sections, it is passable.
