Wheeling Transportation Plan
In 2011, the Village of Wheeling requested assistance to produce a multi-modal transportation plan. Through this effort, the Village sought to establish better connections with neighboring jurisdictions, enhance use of existing and planned recreational facilities, strengthen the local economy, and provide healthy, environmentally-friendly transportation options for its residents and visitors. The plan will develop a comprehensive active transportation network including on and off-street accommodations for bicyclists, pedestrians and transit riders. The plan will also include necessary program and policy improvements to encourage more use of the network. The Village wishes to better integrate land use and the active transportation network while fostering transit oriented development. The Village also seeks additional economic benefits that can result from increased patronage of local businesses. This will be accomplished by creating better local connections for bicycling, walking and transit.
