Superior Street is in the process of being redone. Many are hoping for bike lanes and a more pedestrian-friendly area. I was unaware of this hashtag #SuperiorStreetForAll for the cause of “complete streets.” The term complete streets means taking bicycles and pedestrians and public transportation into consideration.
