Lawrence Avenue "Road Diet" and Streetscape project making big progress

The new medians are in along most of Lawrence Avenue from Damen to Western.
I took one of my long walks around the Ravenswood and Lincoln Square neighborhoods with Stanley yesterday (at 17 months, he's still at a good "nap in the stroller" age). I'm pretty impressed with the progress on the Lawrence Avenue Streetscape project.  Many of the medians, "bump-outs" and planter boxes for trees are in place.

Our family uses both the North Oakley and North Leavitt intersections at Lawrence a ton.  I can already get a sense of what the finished street will offer.

"Streetscap'in".  Beautification elements added to the wider sidewalks at North Leavitt and West Lawrence.
