PRINTERS ROW — City officials plan to roll out new bike lanes in Printers Row beginning next year.
The Chicago Department of Transportation (CDOT) will extend the protected bike lanes on Dearborn Street south to 9th Street, add two new bike lanes on Polk Street from Dearborn to Plymouth Court, and stripe out new bike lanes on 9th from Dearborn to Michigan Avenue next year, according to a flier distributed to neighbors.

The project would add to the slew of new-and-improved Downtown bike lanes coming this fall to Dearborn, Kinzie, and Randolph streets.
The Printers Row project also includes "concrete upgrades" to the existing bike lanes on Harrison Street.
City officials will present the new bike lanes to neighbors at 7 p.m. Tuesday at Grace Place, 637 S. Dearborn St. A CDOT spokesman declined to discuss the new bikeways before the meeting.
