Lake Shore Drive Redesign

Are you sick of traffic jams and lakefront path congestion on the 7-mile stretch on the north end of Lake Shore Drive? An overhaul of the Drive from Grand Avenue all the way to the end at the Hollywood curve is in the planning phase. Some ideas include reducing driving speeds, easing the Oak Street curve, adding bus-only lanes, relieving traffic pinch points, and improving lakefront access and easing overcrowding on the lakefront path. Joining us on Chicago Tonight at 7:00 pm to discuss these ideas are CDOT Deputy Commissioner Luann Hamilton, and the leaders of two civic organizations involved: MarySue Barrett, President of the Metropolitan Planning Council, and Ron Burke, Executive Director of the Active Transportation Alliance.

The following public meetings will be held to share ideas about the Lake Shore Drive Redesign:
