Fund and Construct the East Branch Dupage River Trail


0 have signed. Let’s get to 500.

Dupage County has developed a plan to create the East Branch Dupage River Trail (EBDRT), a North South bike and pedestrian trail. The feasibility study was completed in 2004 and recommended construction over ten years. However, thirteen years later over 75% of the trail has yet to be funded.

Construction of the EBDRT would provide enduring benefits to the residents of Lombard, Glen Ellyn, and neighboring villages. Studies show that bike lanes and trails are a key quality of life attraction for home buyers. This low risk investment will help create a healthy and active community and raise property values. Construction of the trail will also allow residents an active transportation option to businesses along Roosevelt and Butterfield roads. By creating the bike trail, we can try to encourage residents to buy from local businesses, reduce traffic and improve the environment.

The undersigned Dupage County residents urge the county to fund and construct the sections 5 and 6 of the EBDRT between the Prairie Path and Butterfield Road (IL-56).
