In addition to the routine sidewalk removal and replacement programs, the Village completes improvements to benefit bicyclists and pedestrians across the community based on the projects outlined in the Master Bicycle and Pedestrian Plan.
In 2020, the Village will focus on the completion of the Farnsworth-Birch-Koepke-Miller bicycle boulevard. Bicycle boulevards are a type of improvement that improves conditions for bicyclists by installing directional signage and installing traffic calming measures to reduce the speed of vehicles utilizing the same route. This project is currently in design and will be unveiled following an open feedback period from residents. A map of the area to be included can be found at this link.
Once the Village Board has awarded a contract for this work, a copy of the enabling resolution will be posted here.
Once a copy of the project notification to impacted residents is available, it will be posted here.
