About this Article
Liberty Street in Elgin is expected to become a no-passing zone with bike lanes on both sides, possibly by the end of 2013, but what residents really want is for trucks to be prohibited from driving down the street, which is also Route 25, from Slade Avenue to Bluff City Boulevard.
