UPTOWN — Most Chicagoans have mastered the art of parking in the city, but apparently not quite yet on the City's first shared street.
In the two weeks since the Argyle Streetscape officially opened, there seems to be confusion on where to park and exactly how to park along the stretch.
Ald. Harry Osterman (48th) told Uptown Update he's working on coordinating volunteers to help direct parkers and working with the Chicago Department of Transportation to get some signs.
In the meantime to help ease the confusion, the city has created a handy flier to help drivers, pedestrians and cyclist navigate the shared street.
Here are some quick tips to help everyone stay safe on the streetscape:
1. Argyle is a two-way Street: Simply put, that means you shouldn't be parking facing east on the north side of the street.
2. Where to park? Park in areas with "lighter, sandstone colored pavers." The dark gray bricks act as curbs, so try not to park past or on those bricks. Do not park in front of alleys or alongside planters.
3. Right-of-way: Cars and cyclists must yield to pedestrians.
4: Driving: This is where it gets a little tricky, but just follow traffic. Chicanes will push westbound and eastbound traffic south at some places and north at other places.
