We educate about CDOT infrastructure updates by installing posters and talking with community members. During last week’s Chicago Mobility Collaborative meeting, attendees asked how they can get these posters, so we looked into it and now they’re available for advocates who would like to help neighbors understand recent street changes. Help us spread the word! Find the posters pictured here and others at https://chicagocompletestreets.org/safety/education/
