Friends of the Major Taylor Trail workday on Sat. 4/21

We'll be working on a section of trail just east of 12900 S Eggleston, the nearest area for parking. This location is easy to reach by bike from the Major Taylor Trail.  You can also park at Whistler Woods and take a short walk or bike ride to the site, just north of the Little Calumet River.

    Friends of the Major Taylor Trail workday on Sat. 4/21
    Please join Friends of the Major Taylor Trail, Out Our Front Door and Major Taylor Cycling Club Chicago in a spring clean-up project in honor of Earth Day. We will be cutting brush and picking up trash, in preparation for warm weather events on the trail.

miracles on 98th St. (and nearby)

The sinkhole at 98th and Winchester that has been the subject of previous posts is in the process of being repaired and actually has proper barriers while work is being done. Yeah!!!!

    miracles on 98th St. (and nearby)
    In this week of tricks or treats, we've gotten a few little treats. The section of 98th from Damen to Hoyne was ground down for repaving about 2 months ago and has effectively been a not-so-bike-friendly traffic calming zone. It's finally been repaved. Yeah!!!

    98th and Winchester update #3
    I previously posted about a sinkhole at 98th and Winchester that wasn't properly covered, creating a hazard. Last night there was a bigger steel plate and construction horses, forcing traffic around the plate. This morning there was a crew working to fix the sinkhole - yeah!!!

hazard in Vincennes bike lane - or - a job half done

Vincennes at 89th St I reported this to contacts at CDOT and never got any response. This week I reported it again - to CDOT and the 21st ward office. No response so far.

    hazard in Vincennes bike lane - or - a job half done
    A few weeks ago, I spotted something on my Metra ride home that was baffling and disappointing. In some spots along the east side of Vincennes, there are little areas of concrete that aren't connected by any sidewalk. They look like they might have been bus stops at some point.

a missed opportunity on 91st St.

After all the water and sewer work along 91st St. this summer, I hoped that the traffic diverter that was temporarily removed at 91st and Leavitt might be replaced with a smarter, more bike friendly design. Nope, same old STOOPID design.

When infrastructure like these traffic diverters gets removed for construction, there should be an opportunity for public input for potential improvement.  We definitely need to see improvement at 93rd and Damen and at 94th and Leavitt whenever water and sewer work reaches those locations.

*** HAZARD AT 98TH & WINCHESTER ***

If you're passing through the intersection of 98th and Winchester in the near future, watch out for this.

    *** HAZARD AT 98TH & WINCHESTER ***
    If you're passing through the intersection of 98th and Winchester in the near future, watch out for this. A sinkhole opened up recently. The city obviously knows about it, because it got covered by a steel plate. Unfortunately they didn't properly secure the plate - in this intersection with no stop signs and plenty of speed-through traffic - so the plate shifted.
