Speaking of IDOT...

Concepts for the Eisenhower interchanges have been released formally.

Austin is similar. Note the grade-separated bike path... this reminds me of I-66 in Arlington, VA with the Custis Trail. The decking is similar, too. I love the idea of building a bike superhighway in this area. Oak Park is just a little too far from the Loop to be a comfortable bike commute if the whole length is on-street...

TOD Deck Concept
Shown for Austin, but could be built at Harlem, Oak Park, and/or Austin

Mainline Concept for "The Avenues"
Designed to accommodate a busway or Blue Line extension with minimal fuss later on

la forme d'une ville change plus vite, hélas! que le coeur d'un mortel...
