Implement measures on selected roads with bikeways to reduce speeding and encourage bicycle use.

Strategy 2.2.1 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 2Increase bicyclist safety and comfort on streets outside the bikeway network.

Strategy 1

Implement measures on selected roads with bikeways to reduce speeding and encourage bicycle use.

Fast driving is dangerous and discourages people from bicycling. Potential improvements include, where appropriate, curb extensions, striping, planted medians, textured crosswalks and gateway treatments. All improvements should accommodate emergency, snow removal, and mass transit vehicles.

Peformance MeasureTest measures at 5-10 locations by 2015.
