Chicago West Side Safe Routes to School
The Chicago Department of Transportation (CDOT) was awarded a federal Safe Routes to School grant to facilitate safer crossings for students and other people walking through the construction of pedestrian refuge islands. CDOT identified five intersections on Chicago Avenue and five intersections on Madison Street where pedestrian refuge islands would make crossings safer and more comfortable for people walking. High visibility crosswalks and other pavement marking improvements are also planned.
