On Monday, July 17th, the Mayor’s Office of Transportation & Infrastructure Systems will host a public listening session to discuss protected bike lanes for Lombard, South and 27th Streets.
“This will affect the ability to load/unload and otherwise stop on those streets,” says SSWBA Chair, Marcus Ferreria. “If your business is along the path of the route, please attend this meeting to see the presentation on the proposal, express any concerns that you may have and find out what The Mayor’s Office is doing to address the concerns raised to date as it is my understanding that they have been directly reaching out to affected business owners directly over the past several months.
The project will address safety issues by:
• Repainting crosswalks and existing bicycle lanes
• Shortening the pedestrian crossing distance
• Creating a clearly defined bicycle space separated from motor vehicle traffic
• Reducing obstructions in the bicycle lane
• Adding flexible delineator posts in the buffer
• Encouraging transportation choices
The meeting will be held at The Philadelphia School (2500 South Street) from 5:30 – 7pm.
