HYDE PARK — The Chicago Department of Transportation will return to Hyde Park to talk about improving 55th Street on Thursday after mulling suggestions from residents for four months.
Planners will come back to the Chicago Theological Union, 5416 S. Cornell Ave., at 6 p.m. Thursday to talk about their own survey of the strip after hearing from residents in October.
In the fall, Hyde Parkers said the strip would benefit from new street lights, benches and making permanent the protected bike lanes that are currently delineated by painted lines and plastic bollards.
The city is in the process of creating a master plan for the street that will set the course for what improvements get made as money becomes available in the coming years.
