Hampton, Lenzini and Renwick, Inc. (HLR) Phase I Engineering contract approved by Woodstock City Council for proposed bike and pedestrian path connecting downtown Woodstock to IL Route 47.
Hampton, Lenzini and Renwick, Inc. (HLR) is proud to join the City of Woodstock to complete the Phase I Engineering Assessment for a new bike and pedestrian path connecting Woodstock’s downtown to IL Route 47. The project will enhance the Illinois Department of Transportation (IDOT) IL Route 47 expansion project, which includes a 10-foot wide, shared use bike path on the east side of the street. The City’s bike and pedestrian path project will safely link the IDOT path with the City’s Metra train station, Aurora University campus, City Hall, and the Prairie Trail regional bike path. The path will start at IL Route 47 and South Street, cross through Raintree Park, and wind through downtown reconnecting with IL Route 47 along IL Route 14. The City hopes to fund the project with an Illinois Transportation Enhancement Program grant. The proposed project will be a great asset for the City and would include intersection improvements, directional signage, striping, safety lighting, landscaping, educational landmark signage, and possibly public art parklets. HLR is excited to help see it come to fruition!
