Edgewater Bike Lane That Goes Against Car Traffic Coming This Week

Glenwood Greenway Reverse Bike Lane

Cyclists on the Far North Side will have a slower-paced, more family-friendly route after a bike lane is installed on Glenwood Avenue this week.

Dubbed the "Glenwood Greenway," the route takes southbound cyclists from Ridge Avenue to just past Foster Avenue via Glenwood Avenue, a one-way northbound street.

Beginning Tuesday, if weather permits, crews will be out painting the green lane, adding signs and shifting around a few parking spaces, 48th Ward Ald. Harry Osterman told residents in an email last week.

Edgewater Metra Station Design 90% Done, Funding Could Come Soon

Though land acquisition and state budget issues have caused the Edgewater Metra station’s construction to be delayed, Alderman Patrick O’Connor is hopeful that the project will begin soon.

According to a statement put out by the Alderman, he recently met with State Representative Greg Harris and Senator Heather Steans to make sure the Metra project is included in the new State budget once a compromise is reached in Springfield.
