Protected Bike Lanes vs. On-Street Parking

Designing protected bike lanes on corridors with on-street parking and limited right-of-way widths can be challenging. This bike tour will showcase several protected bike lane projects that were installed by removing parking in order to prioritize people biking and walking. Tour leaders will share parking removal strategies that have led to success as well as some of the challenges in removing on-street parking spaces. The tour will include stops on protected bike lanes throughout Chicago’s downtown network as well as Kinzie Street, Milwaukee Avenue, Elston Avenue, and Clybourn Avenue. These projects provide great examples of how city staff, the advocacy community, and business organizations can come together to create streets that are successful for residents, business owners, and visitors by designing for people biking and walking, not parking.
