Let's keep traffic moving in Streeterville
Residents are joining together to oppose a developer’s unworkable traffic plan for 243 E. Ontario
Streeterville’s residents and businesses are joining together to demand a smarter traffic solution for a planned hotel at 243 E. Ontario Street.
The developer wants to direct its taxi and valet traffic into the alley between Ontario and Ohio. But the alley is not designed to function like a street – there are no stop signs to help cars enter or exit, no crosswalks to protect pedestrians, and it is not wide enough for cars to pass by the trucks that use the alley. Cars should be in streets -- not in alleys.
The developer’s plan for 243 E. Ontario will worsen congestion on Ontario, Ohio, and Fairbanks and it will endanger pedestrians. Join us in demanding a smarter solution for our community.
