Did You Know?

A bicycle commuter who rides four miles to work, five days a week, avoids 2,000 miles of driving and about 2,000 pounds of CO2 emissions each year.

Public meeting Thursday night – Central Avenue Bike-Pass?

The planned Central Avenue tunnel under Burbank's rail yard between 65th Street and 72nd Street could be a huge north-south improvement for cyclists and pedestrians through a tough to cross—by any means—area…IF cyclists are heard early in the process.

The Illinois Department of Transportation is listening! Tomorrow, Feb. 17 between 3 p.m. and 7 p.m., you can tell IDOT to include better bicycling and pedestrian facilities in their Central Avenue bypass plans.

What: Central Avenue Bypass Public Hearing
When: Thursday, 2/17, 3 p.m.–7 p.m.
Where: St. Laurence High School, 5556 W. 77th St., Burbank

This isn't a meet on Thursday, start on Sunday kind of project. Think $300–400 million, years and years of studies and funding battles…

…like the I-355 extension. Which, because of involvement of cyclists and trail advocates, will soon host the Veterans Memorial Trail. Getting in early pays off.

If you go, drop us a quick note to!
