Roughly every three days, one person biking or walking is killed by someone driving a car in the Chicago region.

New Illinois Prairie Path bridge to being construction in Wayne

DuPage County Division of Transportation will begin construction on a new bicycle/pedestrian bridge in Wayne in February. The 330-foot bridge will replace a steep embankment and steps that lead over a crossing of the EJ&E/Canadian National railroad. It will be a major safety improvement for the pedestrians, bicyclists and equestrians which are prevalent along this section of trail.

Between February and May, the path will be closed. Bicyclists who wish to continue along the path will have to utilize the local street network for connections.

This $1.2 million project is coordinated and funded by DuPage County with a majority of construction funding provided under a $960,000 federal High Priority Project grant sponsored by former Congressman Hastert.
