League Releases List of "Complete Streets"
The League of Illinois Bicyclists has released its 2009 "Complete Streets" list for the Chicago area. Since 2007 the League has annually released its list of recent roadway projects yielding streets designed to accommodate bicycle, pedestrian and motor vehicle traffic. The League is firm in its belief that a street is "complete" when it is "designed to enable safe access for all users." Of the 46 Chicago area road designs analyzed only six received A ratings. These included roadways in Skokie, Schaumburg, Worth, Algonquin, Hoffman Estates and LaGrange.
