New bike path in Carol Stream provides connection to Great Western Trail
According to an article in the Daily Herald, the Carol Stream Park District will construct a bike path connecting existing trails in Red Hawk Park with the Great Western Trail. The project includes a recreational lease agreement between the Carol Stream Park District and ComEd for a 3,000 sq. ft. parcel. The park district will pay ComEd $1 per year for this land. The new trail is receiving funds through the district’s $37 million parks improvement program, approved by voters in a February 2010 referendum.
In addition, the Village of Carol Stream will complete a 1.4 mile sidepath along Kuhn Road from O’Rahilly Volunteer Park to Lies Road, which was funded in part through the Congestion Mitigation and Air Quality Improvement (CMAQ) Program.
