Northbrook Receives $57,800 for Bike Route Improvements

The money will go toward on-street bike signs and pavement markings.

Northbrook is getting $57,750 in state money to improve bike routes in the village.

The money is part of $52.7 million in community transportation funding that Gov. Pat Quinn recently announced. The funds, which are intended to encourage alternative transportation options, go toward bike paths, walking trails, historic preservation and streetscape beautification projects.

According to a press release from the governor’s office:

The Northbrook Bicycle Plan identifies streets that can be improved to provide a fully connected bicycle network for use by residents to travel to schools, the library, parks, athletic fields and other popular destinations. When complete, this network may serve to provide a viable alternative to automotive transportation. A relatively low cost means of reaching this goal is to install pavement markings and street signage to indicate bicycle routes on Village streets.
