Identify the locations for new crossings over the Chicago River, Calumet River, North Shore Channel, and Sanitary and Ship Canal.

Strategy 1.4.4 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 4Establish bikeways to priority destinations.

Strategy 4

Waterways can be barriers to bicycling, requiring cyclists to use arterial roads with higher traffic volumes and speeds. Consider using de-commissioned bridges, to reduce costs.

Peformance MeasureIdentify 2-3 priority crossings and prepare cost estimates by 2007.
