Bike Lanes and Traffic Calming on W. Bryn Mawr Ave.
Location: W. Bryn Mawr Ave., from North Shore Channel Trail to Skokie Valley Line Trail.
In the past 20 years, developing a safe bicycle infrastructure has been a big part of the City of Chicago’s commitment to improving residents’ quality of life. Cycling is an increasingly popular way to commute, exercise, and relax.
Bryn Mawr is a designated bike route, but it has minimal signage and suffers from chokepoints where cyclists, motorists, and pedestrians compete for space. Marked, protected bike lanes would increase overall safety for all. Bryn Mawr is critical to the Chicago Streets for Cycling Plan as it serves as the main link between the North Shore Channel Trail (5500 N, 3100 W) and the Sauganash/Valley Line Trail (5600 N, 4300 W). These improvements would not just benefit bicyclists, they would also make our streets safer by clearly indicating to drivers and pedestrians where to expect to see cyclists. This project would connect the neighborhoods of North Mayfair, North Park, Brynford Park, Sauganash, Sauganash Park, Peterson Park, and Albany Park.
Additionally, users will bike through the North Park business district. Additionally, to promote greater public safety for bikers and pedestrians alike, this proposal also includes traffic calming measures, such as pavement markings and stop signs.
This proposal has been sent for a cost estimate.
