Crossing a busy street is an everyday activity for most local residents, but too often it’s also one of the most dangerous things they’ll do all day.

The village of University Park, in the far south suburbs of Chicago, recently installed a new pedestrian bridge that will make a big difference in the community.
The bridge will make it easier for children to get to their schools on bikes and on foot and eliminate an unnecessary bus route, saving the Crete-Monee School District thousands of dollars each year.

Active Trans believes that providing these 90 percent with “next-generation” bike facilities will increase confidence and allow for safer, more frequent cycling trips.
That’s the focus of our newest campaign, Family-Friendly Bikeways.
