OBJECTIVE

To increase the safety of pedestrians and bicyclists using the Village's three trails, and to improve the connectivity of those trails.

DESCRIPTION

This project consists of the construction of a new off-street shared-use path that will connect the Village's three existing recreational trails: the Illinois Prairie Path, the Great Western Trail, and the Salt Creek Greenway Trail. The Village has been awarded STP grant funding for this project in FY 2024.

JUSTIFICATION

The Village's existing trails are connected in large part with on-street routes that place pedestrians and bicyclists in close proximity to vehicular traffic. This project would provide for off-street connectivity of the three trails, thus increasing safety and improving trail connectivity.
