[ARCHIVED] Comprehensive Bike Plan Implementation Begins!


In March 2016, the Village Board adopted the Bensenville Active Transportation Plan developed by a Village steering committee, residents, key stakeholders and the consultants from Active Transportation Alliance.

The Village intends to make significant progress on our bike plan with connections to Elmhurst (Salt Creek River Trail, Great Western Trail and Prairie Path), Wood Dale (Salt Creek River Trail) and Elk Grove Village (Busse Woods) by 2018. Details can be seen on the bike route map.

The first leg of the plan’s implementation begins this summer with the construction of the Church Road Shared Use Path (as part of the Church Road resurfacing project). This project will construct an off street shared use path on the east side of Church Road from Grand Avenue to Jefferson Street / 3rd Avenue. The project will also include a much needed resurfacing of Church Road along this same stretch. The Village is pleased to have been awarded a CMAQ (Congestion Mitigation/Air Quality) grant to fund 80% of this portion of the Church Road Shared Use Path and a LAFO (Local Agency Functional Overlay) grant to fund 70% of the roadway component. A shared use path is at least eight feet wide and off-street designed for pedestrian and recreational users. The Illinois Department of Transportation (IDOT) has a June 10, 2016 bid letting date for the project. This project is scheduled to take place between July and October this construction season...
