Transportation Enhancements

WPB SSA#33 strives to improve the pedestrian and cyclist experience in our neighborhoods. 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! Two new crosswalks at Milwaukee/North/Damen are also scheduled to be installed in early 2018. To find out more, please see CDOT's latest public presentation

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:
