Help improve walking, biking, and rolling in Illinois

This year the Illinois Department of Transportation (IDOT) has launched a new initiative to create a roadmap for a safe, connected pedestrian and bicycle network across the state.

The Walk Roll Illinois Active Transportation Plan initiative is an update to the state’s 2014 Bike Plan, which will now include all active transportation modes. IDOT seeks to understand existing conditions, identify needs, and set community priorities to make Illinois more walkable, bikeable, and rollable for all.

Your input is needed! You can provide feedback about your experiences walking, biking, or rolling around the state through IDOT’s online survey and interactive map between now and the end of September.

Through the survey and map, you can share information about barriers you’ve experienced while walking or while rolling by bike, scooter, or mobility device and share safety concerns and routes for improvement.

You can also pinpoint on the interactive map specific locations of concern, including sidewalk gaps, areas that lack bicycle facilities, and unsafe crossings.

The Plan is expected to be completed in the spring of 2024 (learn more about the Plan).

In the meantime, please share your thoughts and ideas with IDOT.

Your feedback will help shape future walking and biking investments, as well as the design and development of the projects. In short, your input will mean better and safer walking and biking options for everyone.
