Lombard Village wide Bicycle and Pedestrian Plan approved by Village Board

Lombard’s first ever Village wide Bicycle and Pedestrian Plan, which was recommended by the Public Safety and Transportation Committee, was recently accepted by the Village Board of Trustees.

This initiative will create a framework for a safe and accessible network of facilities that connect cyclists and pedestrians to popular destinations within Lombard, while meeting the needs of all ages and abilities.

The plan was developed in partnership with Alta Planning + Design and Active Transportation Alliance. The planning process included collecting information from an interactive online map that allowed users to mark popular bike and pedestrian routes, and online surveys. More than 700 people visited the online map, took the survey, met project planners at Cruise Nights, and attended public meetings. A stakeholder group including various agencies and organizations also collaborated on the planning process. As part of the plan, the Village has already completed a new flashing beacon system at the intersection of the Illinois Prairie Path and Main Street that allows path users to activate a flashing light system to warn drivers of their presence. The final plan recommendations include bike accommodations, crossing improvements, and path upgrades based on available funding.

“The purpose of the plan is to respond to a rising need of bicyclists and pedestrians in the community,” said Village Civil Engineer Matthew Lew. “Lombard has access to both the Illinois Prairie Path and the Great Western Trail, which are visited by tens of thousands of people each year. We’re looking forward to providing these hobbyists, daily commuters, families, and the rest of our residents with safer options when it comes to bicycle riding or walking in Lombard.”
