DuPage County and the County's Division of Transportation, with support from the Chicago Metropolitan Agency for Planning through its Local Technical Assistance program, is planning for bicycle and pedestrian improvements in the Elgin-O'Hare Expressway (IL 390) region. In doing so, this plan will increase connectivity with existing bicycle and pedestrian infrastructure, improve bicycle and pedestrian access to transit and other key destinations, and enhance the overall quality of life in nearby communities. The approximately 70-square-mile study area includes ten municipalities, two counties, and multiple jurisdictions, including several transportation agencies responsible for the facilities and services used by travelers. The communities in this region are currently experiencing one of the biggest changes in decades with the construction of the Elgin-O'Hare Expressway. With such a massive infrastructure project underway, this plan will seek to improve bicycle and pedestrian connections throughout the study area.
