|Bike lane looking North on Wabash at Balbo|
For people in favor of more friendly pedestrian streets, you're probably happy. Besides the bike lanes being added, Wabash has been reduced to a single lane for cars in many places. Overall it's a much better experience for bikers and also pedestrians in our opinion.
Drivers might not be as happy as we've already noticed longer waits at stop signs and lights along Wabash.
With the addition of the bike lane North of Roosevelt, there is now a solid stretch of "buffered" protection for bikers from 18th street all the way to Harrison (which is just over a mile long).
Good addition to the hood if you ask us!
