Transportation Enhancements

WPB SSA#33 strives to improve the pedestrian and cyclist experience in our neighborhoods. In early 2018, two new crosswalks were installed at Milwaukee/North/Damen. To find out more, please see CDOT's latest public presentation. Orange planters were also installed along major pedestrian areas as an added barrier between those on foot and vehicular traffic. In summer 2017, we worked with the Chicago Dept. of Transportation (CDOT) on targeted improvements along Milwaukee Avenue. Bike boxes, curb bumpouts, and two slip lane closures (Damen/Milwaukee & Ashland/Milwaukee) were installed all along Milwaukee! 

The SSA periodically installs new benches along sidewalks and on-street bike corrals. Each bike corral can provide up to 12 bike parking spaces! WPB-branded sidewalk bike racks - in our distinctive orange - are also installed to provide cyclists a convenient way to park their bikes:
