Active Transportation Plan – Southwest Council of Mayors (SCM), Illinois, 2012

The Southwest Council of Mayors Regional Bikeways Plan updates its 1997 Regional Bikeways Plan. The Plan sets network location priorities to serve key regional destinations. This method of network creation is unique in that instead of prioritizing “bicycle friendly” roads, the Plan takes the approach that bicycling is a viable transportation option that will grow in popularity if potential riders are given efficient and safe routes to bicycle to regular destinations.
