Illinois Department of Transportation releases state bike plan
The Illinois Department of Transportation (IDOT) released the Illinois Bike Transportation Plan – the first statewide bicycle plan in Illinois history. The plan, which was developed with the assistance of consultants, Alta Planning + Design, is a part of the state's Long Range Transportation Plan. It provides IDOT with policies, best practices, and strategic direction for advancing bicycling as a means of transportation throughout the state and should play important role in the goal of creating a sustainable, multimodal transportation system across Illinois.
An executive summary, technical documents, and appendices are posted online, as well as a video with Secretary Schneider announcing the plan.
