On Friday, IDOT announced $90 million in grants going toward bike, walk and streetscape projects.

We blogged about it and some of the projects are mentioned in today's Sun-Times.

A great highlight is that CDOT won a grant to put in a cycle track (separated bike lane) on Stony Island!

Chicagoland alone will get approximately $45 million of the total and some major trail projects are getting significant funding, including the Veterans Memorial Trail and Calumet-Sag Trail.

Good news, for sure!

Thanks for sharing the good news!
And thanks to Active Trans and LIB for their roles in bringing in this $$$ to cycling projects!!!
Woo hoo!!!!
I was looking for a way to comment on the Route 66 bike trail.
A large portion of it (will) run parallel to Amtrak so I can see a weekend trip downstate in a few years.
Let's hope that CDOT cycle track doesn't just magically appear one day without some input from the public.
I bet we can find out who's responsible for building it. Probably IDNR or IDOT.

The blog briefly made mention of Skokie/Lincolnwood. Are they going to extend the trail that currently ends at Devon in Sauganash?
Where's the "like" button on this page?
