WILMETTE – The Wilmette Municipal Services Committee on May 3 voted 3-2 in favor of keeping Central Avenue’s traffic patterns the same, rejecting the idea of a shared bike lane that would eliminate parking on some portions of the street. Trustee Julie Wolf voted in favor of shared lanes for cyclists and drivers.

The issue was part of the committee’s broader discussion of the Central Avenue Reconstruction Project. The village has received a $3.5 million federal grant and is nearing the close of Phase I of the project that will include resurfacing Central Avenue.

The Village Board will make the final decision regarding Central Avenue’s roadway configuration. The next Village Board is scheduled for May 9.
