Eyes on the Street: CDOT Adds Curb to Prevent Sidewalk Driving
Back in April we showed that people were driving, parking, and blocking the sidewalk next to the BP gas station on the newly redesigned Congress Parkway streetscape. After publishing, we found out that the post had drawn the attention of Chicago Department of Transportation staff.
CDOT took quick action last summer to help dissuade future incursions into pedestrian space by adding a curb between the gas station property and sidewalk. Now the design is telling people where driving space ends, and where walking space begins.
