    The Tribune story on the Skokie bike trail:

    The email doesn’t include a link, and this page’s link doesn’t work.

  • R.A. Stewart

    Ahem, ahem … that fourth line should read “… Could Help Fund Red Line Extension.” Although realistically, we’ll see double the red lights, and the new roads to put them on, before the Red Line is extended by a foot, but still. :-)

  • Fixed, thanks.

  • planetshwoop

    I just confirmed with Lincolnwood planning dept that they are on schedule to build their connector to the Skokie trail in 2016.

  • duppie

    Does that mean from the southern terminus of the Skokie trail, all the way to Devon(?) where the trail currently ends? That would be good news

  • planetshwoop

    Yes, that is what it would mean. You can see that it traces an old train right-of-way through the area.

    So you’d be able to go from Bryn Mawr north to Skokie. I had read in some older articles that Glenview and other northern suburbs wanted to continue the trail north. (On the Southern end, it will be connected to the planned Weber Spur, but that’s a ways out.)
