Grand Avenue Road Diet information gathering & sharing

From Councilperson Abel Guillen’s newsletter:

Monday June 22 | Community meeting for Grand Ave. road diet
6:30-8:30 pm | Barnett Hall behind Lakeshore Ave. Baptist Church, 3534 Lakeshore Ave.

Join Councilmember Guillen to share your ideas and feedback about the City’s plans for a road diet on Grand Ave. from Elwood Ave. to Jean St. The proposed road diet would reconfigure the current four vehicle lanes (two travel lanes in each direction) into a total of three vehicle lanes – one vehicle lane and a bike lane each way with a continuous left-turn lane in the center. The improvements would continue with a road diet proposed for Grand Ave. in adjacent Piedmont. The improvements will make it safer for pedestrians to cross the street, enhance access and comfort for bicyclists, reduce conflicts and collisions for vehicles turning onto and off of Grand Ave., and discourage excessive traffic speeds.
