Bike Path Project Moves to Fullerton in April
Posted on March 31, 2017
On Wednesday, March 22, the Chicago Parks District and Active Transportation Alliance held a public meeting to discuss a full trail separation coming to the Lakefront Trail separating it into two paths – one for foot travel and one for biking. According to Active Transportation Alliance, “The separation will ease congestion and cyclist-pedestrian conflict along the busiest trail in the country.”
The project is being funded by philanthropist Ken Griffith. Construction is set to continue in April on two stretches of the path between Fullerton Avenue and Navy Pier.
Ted Cox with DNA Info Chicago reports, “When construction is set to begin, both cyclists and pedestrians will be detoured at Diversey Parkway to the west side of Diversey Harbor and the Lincoln Park Lagoon, down a path typically used by runners, until reconnecting with the Lakefront Trail at the North Avenue underpass.”
