    City of Chicago / September 15, 2023

    CHICAGO – The Chicago Department of Transportation (CDOT), 40th Ward Alderperson Andre Vasquez, and the Lincoln Square Ravenswood Chamber of Commerce (LSRCC) today broke ground on a major streetscape project that will create a safer, more walkable North Lincoln Avenue that enhances public space and supports economic development. The project, which spans Lincoln Avenue between Western Avenue and Catalpa Avenue, includes wider sidewalks, protected bike lanes, a public plaza and new community gathering space, and additional placemaking and traffic safety improvements.

    “This project is a great example of investments in infrastructure that improve quality-of-life for Chicagoans,” said Mayor Brandon Johnson. “I applaud Alderman Vasquez for his leadership in the 40th Ward and the team at CDOT their commitment to investing in our neighborhoods.”

    “We are pleased to get started on this streetscape improvement project that will make North Lincoln Avenue a more people-oriented street that will foster community and economic growth,” said CDOT Acting Commissioner Tom Carney. “CDOT worked closely with the 40th Ward and community stakeholders throughout the design of this project, and we look forward to seeing it come to life.” Read more HERE
