Transportation Commission Discussion on Proposed Bike and Pedestrian Projects

The Transportation Commission will begin discussion on several proposed bike and pedestrian projects at their meeting on November 16 at 7:00 p.m. at the Public Works Facility, 711 Laramie Avenue.

The agenda includes:

  • Sheridan Road Pedestrian Crossings: Potential improvements consist of the addition of a pedestrian crossing at 10th Street and minor enhancements at other existing pedestrian crossings.
  • Park Avenue, Poplar Drive, and Washington Avenue: Bike boulevard accommodations which primarily consist of “sharrow” bike symbols marked in the street similar to those on Locust Road between Wilmette Avenue and Lake Avenue. The complete bike boulevard map is provided below.

The meeting packet will be posted on the Village website no later than Friday, November 11.  The meeting packet can be accessed here. Click here for more information on walking and biking in Wilmette.
