Po Campo's Loop Pannier goes from the bike lane to the boardroom.

It's crunch week here at Streetsblog Chicago. Thanks to the generosity of readers like you and the support of ad sponsors, we currently have less than $4.5K to raise before we win a challenge grant from the Chicago Community Trust and resume publication. However, there are only nine days left to do this before our April 8 deadline.

Here's a way you can help us close the gap while scoring a cool bicycle gear for yourself or a loved one, at a great price. Today through Wednesday, our friends at Po Campo, Chicago’s homegrown bike bag company, will be donating 50 percent of online sales of four different models to the Streetsblog Chicago Resurrection Fund. Use the coupon code “StreetsblogCHI” and you’ll get 10 percent off your purchase of one of these four bags.

Click here to see Po Campo’s “StreetsblogCHI Collection.” The four bags, mostly named after Chicago neighborhoods, include the Loop Pannier, the Pilsen Crossbody Bag, the Logan Bike Trunk Bag, and the Bike Share Bag.

And don't forget to join us for the free “Foward Mobility” party, this Thursday, April 2, 6-9 p.m. at Transit Tees, 1371 North Milwaukee in Wicker Park. The shop sells very cool bike- and transit-themed clothing and housewares, mostly made in-house.

Steven Vance and I will be there to share info about our work promoting safe, efficient, and vibrant streets. If you’ve donated $100 or more to the Streetsblog Chicago Resurrection Fund, be sure to stop by our table for your free copy of my book “Bars Across America.”

Reps from Transit Future and Norsman Architects will also on hand to discuss their sustainable transportation projects. And did I mention there will be complimentary Antique Tacos and Revolution Brewing beer? Hope to see you there!

A semi driver fatally struck a person walking on Lower Wacker Drive. Did a locked gate contribute to the crash?

The victim may have been walking in the street because a gate limiting pedestrian access on the south side of Wacker was locked at the time.
