Construction season is here!
This proposed 10 foot wide concrete biketrail on the west side of Lehigh Avenue from Chestnut Avenue to Glenview Road is planned to start construction within the next two weeks (weather dependent) and is anticipated to be completed by early May 2011. This project was funded through a federal CMAQ grant and will complete the portion of the Techny Trail between The Glen Metra station to the north and the Metra station located in downtown and will provide opportunities for future bike lanes and/or paths extending south, east, and west of Glenview Road and Harlem Avenue as outlined in the Village’s Bicycle and Sidewalk Master Plan. This bike trail also extends to the new Glenview Public Library.
