Provide through bicycle access whenever building new streets, planned developments, cul-de-sacs, and traffic calming projects.

Strategy 2.1.4 Details

Chapter 2Bicycle-friendly Streets: While bicycling is permitted on all streets in Chicago (except expressways) many factors discourage bicycle use, including narrow travel lanes, congested roads, and uneven pavement. This chapter identifies ways to make Chicago's streets more bicycle-friendly.
Objective 1Accommodate bicycling in every city, county, and state road construction, resurfacing, streetscape, and traffic calming project.

Strategy 4

Provide through bicycle access whenever building new streets, planned developments, cul-de-sacs, and traffic calming projects.

Measures to redirect or reduce vehicular traffic should not discourage bicycling. Coordinate with efforts to establish bike boulevards (refer to Chapter 1: Bikeway Network; Strategy 3.8).

Peformance MeasureDevelop bicycle access standards by 2007. Arrange city approval and use by 2008.
Tracker NotesStatus unknown. Cul-de-sacs are still being created without through bicycle access.
