Proposed Skokie Valley Bicycle Trail Extension

Northbrook, Lake and Cook Counties are in the process of Phase I Engineering design for the potential extension of a bike trail south from Lake County into the Northbrook area. The Skokie Valley Trail, which runs along the Commonwealth Edison right-of-way north of Lake-Cook Road, could potentially be continued south via a bridge over Lake-Cook Road and utilize the same Commonwealth Edison corridor which runs parallel to Skokie Boulevard to Dundee Road. From Dundee Road bicyclists and pedestrians will be directed towards the existing bike path that extends to Sunset Ridge Road and exits onto Voltz Road (east of Sunset Road). From there, users of the trails system will be guided to Happ Road where there are existing bike lanes for bicyclists and Sunset Ridge Road where public sidewalk is available for pedestrians.
