Did You Know?

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

March events on the Lakefront Trail

The Active Transportation Alliance compiles a list of events happening each month along the Lakefront Trail. See what’s going on in the month of March so you can better plan your walking, biking or running route. As we inch towards spring, the trail gets busier.

For regular updates about the Lakefront Trail, follow our Lakefront Trail Twitter page and the #chiLFT hashtag.

NOTE: For updates on the Lakefront Trail separation construction, visit the Chicago Park District’s page. Temporarily, all path users are asked to share the newly separated bike trail between Fullerton Parkway and North Avenue. Reminder, please use caution and slow down in work zones.
