Illinois Road Diet Watch: Bike lanes coming to Pratt Ave. in Lincolnwood

Bike lanes had previously been proposed on Pratt Avenue between Lincoln and Cicero avenues, providing a connection to the Valley Line Trail. The lanes would have replaced parking lanes on this largely residential stretch, which has low on-street parking demand due to the presence of driveways and the Bryn Mawr Country Club to the south. However, Lincolnwood director of public works Andrew Letson recommended against the change, arguing that “removing parking… may cause challenges for residents and their guests.”
