Road Diet Alert Chicago: Clark And Devon To Get Massive Overhaul. Here’s How Neighbors Can Weigh In

Rebuilding the streetscape is one of the major goals of the Clark Street Corridor Master Plan, which looks to turn the area into a vibrant business corridor that welcomes people to Rogers Park and Edgewater.

Currently, the area near Clark and Devon is a jumbled mix of intersections, parking lots and bus terminals.

The area has “large amounts of asphalt,” making it tough for pedestrians to cross, said Lubka Benak, director of the Chicago Department of Transportation’s livable streets department.

The Clark and Ashland intersection in particular is “excessively large and a bit confusing to navigate,” necessitating two traffic lights, Benak said.
