Plans for Chicago's Lake Shore Drive overhaul move forward
"North Lake shore drive is getting rebuilt or make that redefined as part of the years long redefined drive project, the Illinois in Chicago Departments of transportation of and gathering feedback, and coming up with potential ways to overhaul the drive from grand to Hollywood. They've narrowed it down to a few options and they're looking for your input ahead of an upcoming public meeting Chicago tonight's Nick Bloomberg takes a look. Lakeshore drive is iconic but with icon status comes aging infrastructure some up to eighty years old and are in need of replacement, and so can we look at some opportunities to really reinvasion the area and solve problems while we rebuild the road problems not just like crumbling infrastructure, but also safety and mobility for all kinds of users. One of the things we heard definitely was improved access to. North shore drive itself. But really to the park, which is an iconic park based on roadway needs and public input planners came up with some essentials lakefront access every quarter mile grade separation for the Lakefront trail where it crosses east West streets getting rid of the pesky signal at Chicago, avenue, and reinforcing the shoreline which has taken a beating of late all the things that we see as critical to install. Harbinson what alternative? The alternatives look at ways to improve travel for buses. One would add a fifth lane in the center just for transit another option would convert an existing lane for transit leaving three for general purpose planners are also considering creating one or two lanes usable by buses and by drivers willing to pay a toll, how do we improve and how do we further manage the traffic? How do we further improve the reliability of that transit but as always a major project like this one has raised Concerns about the character of the Lakefront Lakeshore drive needs it's improvements, but we don't want to see lakeshore drive reconfigured to a point where it becomes a an interstate highway Miller. Says past renovations like near McCormick place created that wide interstate feel. He's also hesitant about a trenched roadway like what's on the table at Chicago Avenue WanNa keep that boulevard character to the drive friends of the Parks Twenty Years Ari agrees she's concerned expanding the drive could put parts at risk our preference is that Improvements be made to make traffic flow better to improve transit access, but not to create more lanes for cars, and while she appreciates the project I toward shoreline stability, this project released should be set within a much larger more comprehensive consulation about our late for neurosurgeon problem others think improvements for transit don't go far enough Kyle Lucas of the group better streets. CHICAGO SAYS ACTIVISTS HAD TO FIGHT TO KEEP the option that converted a lane for buses only, and he wants planners to think bigger like bus rapid transit shifting transportation closer to the edge of the city, and then creating something that's similar to an L. Line a fraction of the cost. Another idea protected bike lanes in both directions since Lucas says, the Lakefront trail isn't always practical for cyclists and none of that taking away from access for cars but we think the data suggests that. If we were to actually invest in alternative of transportation. We need way less space for cars on the Lakefront we could dramatically reduce the footprint of the road and create more park space for people to enjoy and kate low of UIC worries about focusing too much on congestion since transportation is the biggest contributor to greenhouse gases. In the US, we should instead have reducing vehicle miles traveled be one of the primary motivating factors while she appreciates. That improving transit is one of the goals at the heart of a it's about enabling auto commutes during the peak our peak our downtown commuters are disproportionately affluent. So this project would speed their commute and not address transit as on the South and West sides for their part I dont and CDOT say the project is multimodal focused on the future and effort to balance a lot of different interests. Everyone loves lake shore drive for different reasons. We've tried to. Weave into our designs public comment on the five proposed designs is open through November ninth for Chicago Tonight I'm nick.
