CDOT Responds: 2400 N. Albany Bump-out Plan

Finally, the moment we all have been waiting for! We have finally gotten a draft plan back from CDOT on our proposed street redesign. If you follow the email thread below there was some back and forth with the alderman and CDOT about the number of parking spaces. The guy from CDOT said there would be some loss of parking. The alderman requested an alternative design without the loss of parking and then the CDOT guy said it really wasn't possible. So now at lest we have something real to look at and react to that meets all the CDOT requirements. Also, you should note that the alderman said he would like to add this to his 2009 menu meaning that if we can agree on a design and get the petitions signed, we could have something done next year. The final cost estimate has not been done, but CDOT gave a ballpark of $100,000-$150,000 which is much less than the alderman had thought.
