New Bike Lanes Proposed to Connect Dearborn Route to Grant Park

A reader writes:
There is a South Loop Neighbors meeting being held on August 23 at 7:00 pm at Grace Place on this topic where CDOT will discuss this proposal. We are hoping that 4th Ward - Alderman Sophie King plans to attend.  
The proposed bike lane will connect Dearborn St. at Polk, to Plymouth Court until 9th Street, turn East bound on 9th all the way to Grant Park. This will go through the Dearborn Park 1 RESIDENTIAL area, and increase bicycle traffic through this neighborhood.  
The potential for collisions between Bicyclists and 1) children, 2) dogs, dog walkers going to the Park, 3) the aged residents from The Oaks, and of course, the considerable foot traffic Of the residents…  
This will actually ruin the nice, quiet gated community that is there today…
