RTA logo Rolling Meadows Golf Road Transit and Pedestrian Mobility Study

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.
