I am a homeowner and resident on Woodward Ave in Norwood Park. We are a family with 3 children and make use of the nearby neighborhood parks, shops, and services.
In re: STIP Project #U-5781 and #U-5782, road renovations for Merrimon Ave, I am in favor of a 3-lane solution (employing a center turn lane) allowing ample space for bus turn-outs, regulation width bike lanes, and safe, set back, pedestrian sidewalks.
Please maintain the human scale of our neighborhood and enhance our connectivity among homes, businesses and public spaces. Please engineer changes that allow for slower traffic speeds and greater enjoyment of the public corridor by the families in residence, their visitors and customers.
Do not turn our AVENUE into a HIGHWAY.
