Mack Road Bridge and Bike Path Preliminary Engineering
Phase I/Preliminary Engineering
Estimated Construction: 2021/2022
Project Overview: In December 2015, the City was awarded federal Surface Transportation Program (STP) funding that will cover 75% of construction costs and construction engineering to add a bike path along the south or north sides of Mack Road, just east of Route 59. In May 2018, the City was awarded Surface Transportation Bridge Program (STP-Br) funding for the replacement of the bridge. The proposed improvements include pedestrian signal modifications at the intersection of Route 59 and Mack Road, a 10-foot wide asphalt path on the north side of Mack Road, a new Mack Road Bridge over the West Branch of the DuPage River, and a connection to the existing trail system in the Blackwell Forest Preserve.
