New lights and re-painted poles along a very
busy area where the community has places
to shop, eat and play
3800 through 3900 W. Lawrence Ave

This project is to upgrade (16) individual street lights and re-painting of
each street light to provide better lighting for drivers and pedestrians and
$11,200 enhance the safety and beautification along Lawrence Ave.

The noted stretch of Lawrence Avenue is highly trafficked by street traffic (cars,
buses, bikes) and a high volume of pedestrian traffic. The current lights are not
bright enough because the current street lamp conditions are poor and they do
not provide adequate brightness along the street. The current problem/challenge
presented by the poor lighting is decreased public safety and decreased
attractiveness for new business development. Increasing the lighting on this
stretch of road could encourage increased positive traffic and safety, increased
business prospects and increased business traffic to new/existing storefronts.
Increased lighting along this stretch of road will also ensure that pedestrian
traffic is more visible to normal street traffic (cars, buses and cars).

Vote to improve safety on the sidewalks! It’s important that all residents can
move safely around the 35th Ward. There is no ramp for wheelchairs to access
the sidewalk in front of the Logan Square Blue Line entrance at 2614 N
Kedzie.There is a handicapped loading zone in the parking lot here, but people
must enter traffic to get to the wheelchair ramps to the south at
Wrightwood/Kedzie, or north to Milwaukee/Kedzie. The wheelchair ramp would
help many community members who use wheelchairs or walkers, as well as
parents with children in strollers, commuters to the CTA and other pedestrians

Vote for Resurfacing these 4 projects! Resufacing is the only available funding
for residential street resurfacing in Chicago’s wards. Most of Chicago’s streets
and alleys are repaired or ignored without the city’s resident’s approval. This is
our Ward’s chance to make a difference for our neighbors! The 35th Ward
residents and Community Representatives identified streets and alleys most in
need of resurfacing. Streets are not listed in any particular order. All streets
submitted for resurfacing are subject to approval by the Chicago Department of
Transportation.
