RTA logo Pace Central Harlem Avenue Corridor Study

Study Description

This project will include a transit access and land use study that recommends ways to improve transit accessibility while identifying and promoting potential land uses that compliment transit service along the 10 mile stretch of Harlem Avenue, from Lake Street in Oak Park to 63rd Street in Argo. This project will continue the momentum of the previously completed Southwest Conference of Mayors sponsored Harlem Avenue Corridor Project (from 63rd Street to I-80), which has experienced successful implementation efforts. The project area is slated for future Pulse Arterial Rapid Transit service.
