Bike Lane Arterial Street Improvements

City of Chicago
Bike Lanes in Chicago
Dates: 2013 – 2014
Cost: $1 million (construction value)

Project Detail

The City of Chicago has been named home of some of the most user-friendly and effective bicycle lanes in the United States.

The Streets for Cycling Plan 2020 bikeway network connects neighborhoods and destinations throughout Chicago. When complete, the City of Chicago will have hundreds of miles of barrier- and buffer-protected bike lanes, traditional bike lanes, neighborhood greenways, and additional innovative treatments that will create safer streets for bicyclists, pedestrians, and motorists. This proposed 645-mile bicycle system will run throughout Chicago’s neighborhoods.
