    Milwaukee Avenue In Wicker Park Really Needs Bike Lanes. Sign This Petition To Help It Happen.
    The Milwaukee Avenue corridor is one of the most heavily biked in the entire country, but-as many cyclists know all too well-a stretch through Wicker Park can feel like a gauntlet run due to the lack of bike lanes. Adding those lanes has long been a part of North Side cyclists' wish list.
    http://chicagoist.com

  • JeannyB Old Apartment renovator, architect,

    We need pedestrian lanes on the sidewalk and a mandate for people to walk single file and for all the sidewalks to be fixed so that they 're level....meanwhile most of us put up with what exists, since nothing else that happens is going to guarantee a smooth navigation, no matter how loud you yell your protest.

  • There's barely room to drive as it is! I drive a compact but I am not the norm, not to mention all the delivery trucks and cabs who double park in the middle of the street.
