The Safe Travel for All Roadmap (STAR) is taking an exciting next step – safety action planning efforts will kick off in early 2024. Six counties in the region (Cook, DuPage, Kane, Lake, McHenry, and Will), as well as the Greater Ashburn community area in Chicago and the Town of Cicero, will develop safety action plans as part of STAR. The plans will identify context-specific strategies to improve roadway safety for all users, particularly for people walking, biking, or using a wheelchair.
STAR is implemented by CMAP and is primarily funded by a $5 million federal Safe Streets and Roads for All grant, with substantial financial support from IDOT and partner counties.
