Watch video: Walk Roll Illinois: Active Transportation Plan
Draft Project Vision Statement: Active transportation, (walking, biking, rolling, or using a mobility device), will be safe, fun, and comfortable for people of all ages, abilities and backgrounds across Illinois and increase connectivity between where people live, work, learn, and play through agency commitment, innovative partnerships, and leadership. The multimodal transportation network will be equitable, context-sensitive, reliable, and will prioritize our most vulnerable roadway users through effective policy, design, and maintenance strategies.
This plan will provide a comprehensive understanding of current conditions, identify needs and priorities, and provide a framework for policy to support future implementation. The project will employ holistic planning, engagement, and multimodal analysis to create a plan that is policy and action oriented.
