I support local businesses in the area and they will be hugely and negatively impacted by this plan. Traffic is bad enough as it is. Pedestrians will never be able to cross street. We are taking roads away to support those that do not pay for them with registrations and licensing.

At my address is a senior citizen, and a disabled person, there are doctors' offices along Milwaukee Ave making them walk further to the door is not understandable. Additionally this is a road with both a firehouse and a police station .. not to mention a huge bus station to cut traffic down to 2 lanes is poor planning. Those bike lanes will not be used to their full capacity year round, will require ongoing funds to plow.. where is that money coming from. I am against it, and I don't own a car. Leave it as it is .. put up a zebra crossing if you have to across from the transit station and install a couple of cash cameras if speeding is an issue.

This will cause major congestion. Small business owners will be affected in a negative way. Bicycle owners do not pay any sticker or registration fees to have a whole street lane.

We don't need any more big brother, traffic slowing nonsense in this city. We are spied upon, traffic snarled, and hurt in our businesses. Enough of this mini dictatorship! Bicycles do not own the road in big cities! They are a nuisance. The wants of a small minority, yet again, trump those of the majority. When and where will this end????

Traffic on Milwaukee Ave is already heavy with bus car and truck traffic will hinder our club attendance

Milwaukee is my main artery to get downtown for work. This plan would make things a mess with the 270 Pace bus stopping all traffic as it picks up riders. What about Andy's Deli? Traffic almost comes to a standstill with two lanes. It would be a disaster. With traffic reduced to one lane you would make it hard for me to get to my dentist, my church and the fruit market. Please don't ruin our quality of life like this!!!!!

I am in this area frequently and to reduce traffic lanes is a silly idea.

There are too many emergency vehicles that need to get thru. this is a major issue. Spend that money on resurfacing that stretch of roads which is currently very dangerous.

I drive on Milwaukee Ave a lot. This idea would cause major congestion. Its ill conceived.
