Chicago Ave Bus Lane Improvement
In 2020, a dedicated bus lane from implemented from W. Chicago Ave from Ashland to Laramie. The lanes were implemented with solid white lines and text declaring "BUS ONLY".
The issues with these lanes are the following:
- Painted lines and text are fading
- Limited / short "right turn" lanes for exiting or undertaking vehicles
- Other dedicated bus lanes in the city are painted red to vis
- No bike lane on Chicago Ave
Putting aside the lack of traffic enforcement, the above issues may result in low compliance and and overall frustrating experience.
This proposal requires intergovernmental advocacy between Alderman La Spata and the Chicago Transit Authority. The 1st Ward office is currently examining how to include policy advocacy proposals on the PB ballot with volunteers.
