Dearborn Bike Lane Gets Upgrade with Protective Barriers

In case you haven't been to Dearborn in awhile, the popular bike lane is getting an upgrade (via Streetsblog):
One of Chicago’s first and most popular protected bike lanes is getting another upgrade.
The Chicago Department of Transportation announced yesterday that it has launched construction of concrete curb protection on the Dearborn two-way protected bike lane, along its entire length from Polk to Kinzie. The lane sees about 800 bike trips during the evening rush, according to the city.
I use this bikelane all the time and this improvement is warranted and great.  The lane is always busy during the workweek and often times motorists have abused the fact that it's relatively exposed.  Hopefully this will help.
