In Buffalo Grove, village leaders want to make it easier to bike for transportation.
The Buffalo Grove Bicycle Committee is pushing to add bike lanes in Buffalo Grove on Brandywyn Lane, Thompson Boulevard and Bernard Drive, but first a technical analysis is needed.
The Northwest Municipal Conference Bike Plan, which Active Trans played a lead role in creating, serves as a guide for transportation-friendly enhancements for bike corridors in Buffalo Grove and its surrounding areas.
Deerfield Parkway and Dundee Road currently act as connecting corridors, and the village has already received a grant from Illinois Department of Transportation for sidewalk and pedestrian improvements at Dundee Road.
The ad hoc committee hopes to soon become a permanent, budgeted fixture at the village, bringing more active transportation options to residents of Buffalo Grove.
