Bus riders account for more than 20 percent of people using Lake Shore Drive every day while taking up a fraction of the space that cars do.

Snow and the Lakefront Trail

So far, we have been pretty fortunate with the lack of snow. The Park District does a pretty good job of plowing the Lakefront Trail each morning that has snow. If the snow comes after the early morning, it usually won't get plowed until the next morning.

Many areas of the Lakefront Trail also get salted. Even if there isn't snow, if there is ice on the Trail it will usually get salted.

The area between the Oak Street Bend and Ohio Street will usually NOT get plowed or salted due to the slant of the pavement. It can be dangerous for vehicles to be tending to the Trail in this area when there is snow or ice present. Occasionally this section will get attention but the general rule is that it won't be plowed or salted.

If you see an area of the Lakefront Trail that is being neglected this winter, please send Randy an email and we will make sure that the Park district is aware of the area.
