SHOREWOOD – Plainfield and Oswego will see a combined $475,990 investment in bike paths and sidewalks, State Senator Meg Loughran Cappel (D-Shorewood) announced Wednesday.

“Infrastructure maintenance is important at every single level of a community,” Loughran Cappel said. “Though they can be overlooked, bike paths and walking trails are vital structures that deserve regular attention and care.”

Residents will see improvements to a number of area trails for pedestrians and bicyclists, including Wolfs Crossing Road at Harvey Road Intersection in Oswego, and DuPage River Trail at Renwick Road in Plainfield.

These projects are part of the Illinois Transportation Enhancement Program, for which the Illinois Department of Transportation has selected 99 projects totaling $105.7 million. Projects receiving funding in this round of investment include biking and walking paths, trails, streetscape beautification, and other projects designed to encourage safe travel across the various modes of transportation at the local level.

“Our residents are extremely fortunate to have accessible, clean trails that give everyone the chance to enjoy the outdoors,” Loughran Cappel said. “Investments such as this ensure long-term viability and encourage active lifestyles.”
