城市的打折活动

Elmhurst Bicycle and Pedestrian Plan Update

Serving the Needs of Pedestrians and Cyclists of All Abilities

Civiltech worked with the 城市的打折活动 to build off of previous planning efforts and develop a City-wide pedestrian and bicycle network. The Bike and Pedestrian Plan provides a comprehensive network of improvements that were vetted by the community in a few robust rounds of public feedback. 由于大流行, the project team pivoted the second phase of the community engagement strategy to virtual and deployed innovative and interactive tools to reach residents and illustrate the draft plan recommendations.

Targeted Improvements and Conceptual Designs

The plan targets improvements that will connect neighborhoods with their local schools, as well neighborhoods within the City’s business districts. Civiltech conferred with City staff after an initial round of community engagement to identify key locations where additional visualizations should be produced. Once these locations were decided, Civiltech created visual conceptual designs for these locations to showcase the context-sensitive treatments and design solutions that could be implemented to increase safety and accessibility for all users. The team considered potential benefits and constraints of designs beyond the curb-to-curb space to the adjacent land uses.

十字路口的工具包

Civiltech compiled a toolkit of crossing and other intersection design treatments for the 城市的打折活动 to consider as their active, multimodal transportation network is constructed. These tools are meant to enhance connections between the various recommended bike and pedestrian facilities and create a Complete Street environment that prioritizes safety, 安慰, and access for all users of the roadway.

虚拟接触

在规划的发展过程中, the COVID-19 pandemic occurred and impacted how community engagement was conducted. The community engagement activities were pivoted to an online and remote approach to ensure the safety of all involved with shaping the Bike and Pedestrian Plan. These opportunities still allowed residents to learn about, 审查, and comment on the proposed recommendations before finalizing the proposed network. One of these highly graphical tools included an ESRI Story Map of the recommendations. This provided residents a self-guided tour of the draft recommendations prior to taking a survey. Additional virtual opportunities included:

  • 虚拟开放的房子
  • 在线调查
  • Walk Bike Snap Elmhurst Sweepstakes
  • 项目网站
  • 指导委员会会议

追求赠款资金

The project team worked closely with City planners and engineers to identify projects that were realistic, implementable and great candidates for grant funding including but not limited to the Bike Path Grant Program (IDNR), Illinois Transportation Enhancement Program (ITEP), 交通拥堵缓解 & Air Quality Improvement Program (CMAQ), Transportation Alternatives Program (TAP), 及安全上学路线(SRTS).

实施这个计划

As a result of providing the City with an implementable and shovel-ready plan, Civiltech is now providing cost estimates for the plan’s near term project recommendations. The City is currently programming and planning for projects to be included in their budget with design engineering and construction targeted for 2022-2026. This seamless transition from plan to actual project proves that Civiltech’s Plangineering 方法真的有效.
