Bicycle and Pedestrian Plan

The City of Elmhurst developed this bike and pedestrian plan to improve walking and biking throughout the City and improve access to destinations like transit stations, business districts, schools, parks, and recreational areas. Elmhurst streets have many different elements to balance in creating a context-sensitive pedestrian and bike plan. Uses such as on-street parking, loading zones, driveway access, sidewalk connections, turn lanes, transit stops, bicycle facilities, utilities, and trees all vary from corridor to corridor, and sometimes even block by block. Different communities and groups within the City have complex needs which influence the availability and equitable distribution of transportation resources. By creating this plan, Elmhurst can build on its existing assets and create a healthier, more sustainable and active community.
