School/Aldine & Roscoe Greenway

Neighborhood Greenways turn roads into places for people.  Greenways are residential streets with low speeds and low traffic volumes where people walking and biking are given priority. They create a more welcoming, livable street environment by applying traffic calming and innovative design strategies to a corridor. Greenways are still conducive to local car traffic and street parking, but they improve traffic safety for everyone. More people walking and biking also means more "eyes on the street," making for a safer and friendlier community!

School/Aldine and Roscoe from Ashland to the Lake is the perfect candidate to pilor the 44th Ward’s first Greenway. Neighbors on School/Aldine and Roscoe have contacted my office to voice concerns about speeding vehicles that use School/Aldine and Roscoe to bypass traffic on Belmont.

This Greenway project is an exciting opportunity and would be the 44th Ward's first east/west bike lanes, connecting with five major north/south bike routes: Lincoln, Southport, Clark, Halsted and the Chicago Lakefront bike trail. Stay tuned for more details! I look forward to working with the community on this proposal.

Status:  The School/Aldine and Roscoe Greenway project is currently wrapping up the planning and study phase.  A special task force and the Department of Transportation (CDOT) have been reviewing traffic studies to create appropriate recommendations for community review.  The task force and CDOT have reached an agreement of suitable traffic calming treatments for School/Aldine and Roscoe. In the coming months our office will hold a community forum to collect input and suggestions.
