55th Street Project is Under Way
-posted by richard gill
Work is in progress near 55th & Ellis, June 29.
Work is moving along on the much-anticipated safety enhancements for 55th Street between Cottage Grove and Lake Park Avenue. The project primarily involves re-striping and new signage to improve safety and accommodations for pedestrians, bicyclists, and motor vehicle traffic. This is one of several such projects being implemented by the Chicago Department of Transportation. See the April 23, 2012 installment of this blog for details.
Initial pavement markings show arrangement of westbound traffic lane, parking lane, bike lane and bus stop. Parking lane is adjacent to traffic lane; bike lane is next to the curb.
