Neighborhood Greenways are generally located on residential streets and are designed to maintain safe vehicle speeds, reduce non-local vehicle traffic and to prioritize people. Traffic calming structures, pavement markings and signage are used to improve safety for all modes of transportation; bicyclists, pedestrians and motorists. Residents across the country are enjoying Neighborhood Greenways and benefiting from quieter streets, pleasant neighborhoods, and the ability to feel safe and comfortable while riding a bike and walking in their community.
Proposed 2012 Projects
The design for the 47th ward’s Berteau Avenue Greenway is a result of several community meetings with local block groups, ward residents and the Alderman’s office. Each proposed treatment is intended to address areas of concern that have been identified by residents and the project will serve as an important connection to the existing bike network.
