ISW Humboldt Park: North Ave Corridor Improvements

Design Area: North Avenue from Kostner Avenue to Kedzie Avenue

Humboldt Park is one of 12 key commercial corridors in the 10 communities – the “front doors” to the neighborhoods – INVEST South/West collectively supports infrastructure development as a part of the initial phase of Mayor Lightfoot’s INVEST South/West commercial corridor improvement strategy.  Based on feedback received at the INVEST South/West kick-off meeting, the priority focus includes both North and Chicago avenues, running from Kedzie westward through the neighborhood.

The scope of this CDOT-led project includes streetscape improvements on North Avenue from Kostner Avenue to Kedzie Avenue. The project will provide safe, walkable, attractive streets that foster community and economic growth.  This effort will support the INVEST South/West initiative to re-activate neighborhood cores that have historically served as focal points for pedestrian activity, shopping, services, transportation, public spaces, and quality-of-life amenities for local residents.
