Sidewalks Coming to North 143rd
Mayor McGinn announced this evening that North 143rd will have 3200 square feet of sidewalks constructed as part of eleven city wide Neighborhood Street Fund Projects. The North 143rd safety improvement project, supported by the Broadview Community Council and ranked as the highest priority project by the North West District Council will construct a 6′ asphalt walkway with a concrete curb on the north side of 143rd from Linden Avenue west to Palatine. A portion of the project area is in the Bitter Lake Hub Urban Village and will serve seniors, Broadview Thompson students, disabled neighbors, cyclists and transit riders. North 143rd is posted 20 mph although motorist often travel 35-40mph so residents are seeking traffic calming and spaces for cyclist as part of the project. The cost estimate for the project is $655,000 with some funding coming from the Bridging the Gap Fund.
