Consider establishing bikeways on streets with rush hour parking controls.

Strategy 1.3.4 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 3Use innovative designs to expand and enhance the bikeway network.

Strategy 4

Consider establishing bikeways on streets with rush hour parking controls.

Many excellent streets for bicycling have an extra travel lane during the rush hour period, so that a full-time bike lane cannot be established. "Rush hour bikeways," currently at three locations in Chicago, provide a wide curb lane during the rush hour period and a bikeway with curbside parking the rest of the day.

Peformance MeasureEstablish bikeways on streets with rush hour parking controls at 3-5 locations in 2007. Evaluate their effectiveness by 2008.
Tracker NotesI don't think this has been done. I know the location of only one of the "rush hour bikeways", Clark Street between Diversey and ??.
