The Chicago Department of Transportation is assembling a master plan for bicycling throughout the city. To determine where the city should focus its resources, CDOT is hosting a series of open meetings to discuss the plans; the final opportunity for public input is scheduled for Wednesday, Feb. 1, at Sulzer Regional Library, 4455 N. Lincoln Ave., 6:00 – 8:00 p.m.

“Our efforts to develop the Streets for Cycling Plan 2020 depend on the input, ideas, and experiences of residents in many communities,” said Gabe Klein, Commissioner of the Department of Transportation. “We want the public to help identify streets for new types of on-street bikeways, including protected bike lanes. It’s going to be a plan developed by current bicyclists and those interested in bicycling.”

If you miss the meeting, which will be chock full of maps and planning documents, you can join webinars on Friday, Feb. 3, or Monday, Feb. 6.
