Study Description

This project provided recommendations aimed at improving pedestrian access, circulation and safety along Golf Road (IL Route 58) from Interstate 290 (IL Route 53) to Algonquin Road (IL Route 62), a 2 mile corridor that is home to several thousand professional jobs. The study focused on ways to make the area transit and pedestrian friendly, and examined the possibility of increased local transit service.

The final plan was presented to and approved by the City Council on March 19, 2013. An Implementation Task Force has been formed and continues to pursue funding options for plan recommendations, particularly pedestrian improvements and additional shuttle service.

The City received Congestion Mitigation and Air Quality (CMAQ) funding, with assistance from the RTA, to install two pedestrian signal heads, two miles of sidewalks, and five crosswalks in the study area. Installation of these improvements is scheduled to begin in 2015.

Pace initiated Call-n-Ride service for the corridor in October 2012. Riders per hour weekday average was 2.14 in October 2013. Additionally, the Implementation Task Force is working with the TMA of Lake Cook to investigate possible Shuttle Bug service.
