Establish the new trails, trail improvements, and new trail access points recommended in the South Lakefront Access Study and Chicago Park District Framework Plans.

Strategy 1.2.6 Details

Chapter 1Bikeway Network: "Bikeways" are streets and trails specifically designed for bicycle travel. Bikeways help bicyclists feel comfortable riding, whether on streets with heavy motor-vehicle traffic or on off-street trails. Surveys consistently indicate that providing bikeways is the most effective way to encourage bicycling.
Objective 2Establish new trails, improve existing trails, and improve access to trails.

Strategy 6

Establish the new trails, trail improvements, and new trail access points recommended in the South Lakefront Access Study and Chicago Park District Framework Plans.

These studies identify 5.5 miles of new trails, 1.5 miles of bike lanes, 17 access points, and 6 routes to Indiana. Priority projects include routing through McCormick Place; access bridges at 35th, 41st, and 43rd Streets; an improved crossing of Cornell Drive at the Midway Plaisance; and an underpass at 67th Street. Ensure that new trails provide safe, direct connections to the on-street bikeway network and, where appropriate, to adjacent municipalities.

Peformance MeasureEstablish 20-30 of the 44 recommended projects by 2015.
Tracker NotesAs mentioned in another strategy about grade separated crossings, no progress has been made on the access bridges at 35th, 41st, or 43rd Street bridges. I have seen neither the study or the plan. Are they online?
