While this isn't technically part of Uptown, it will affect both drivers and pedestrians coming to our community. In his latest newsletter, Ald. Martin writes:
"The Chicago Department of Transportation will begin installing left turn traffic calming improvements (LTTC) on Ashland between Wilson and Cullom next week.
The intersections receiving improvements are on Ashland at Wilson, Sunnyside, Montrose and Cullom. CDOT is installing locations throughout the city identified as having a history of crashes involving left turns.
LTTC helps guide drivers to take a slower and safer path when turning left, reducing conflicts with pedestrians and improving drivers’ visibility of them. We're excited that these are the first locations outside of downtown where the city is installing this treatment."
