Traffic! Traffic! Traffic!
We, at the Chatham Avalon Park Community Council, are concerned by the increased traffic seen and felt along 79Th Street in both directions from State Street and Cottage Grove Avenue. We feel the Department of Transportation, City of Chicago, should step up to the plate and repaint, resurface, and provide designated bike paths (for bikes and motorcycles) for not only 79Th through Chatham, but on Rev. Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr. Drive from 75Th Street to 87Th Street as well with periodic bike racks along the adjoining curb paths on the sidewalks. Mayor Daley, have this done ASAP!
