Bicycle & Pedestrian Project: Shoe Factory Road & I-90 Undercrossing
I-90 Crossing Adjacent to the CN Railroad Right of Way
A project has been in development for several years on a plan to construct a path connecting the Prairie Stone Business Park to the Shoe Factory Road trail. A portion of the proposed path requires approvals from Canadian National Railway. Despite ongoing efforts by the Village, agreement with the railroad has not been reached. As such, the timing of when this work might occur is very uncertain. The project is a joint effort among the Village, Hoffman Estates Park District, and the Forest Preserve District of Cook County. The scope is to provide a paved bicycle / pedestrian undercrossing of I-90 along the CN Railroad Right-of-Way to link the Shoe Factory Road path to the Prairie Stone Business Park. The work would also involve paving the section of earth / gravel path between the CN Railroad Right-of-Way and IL-59. A connection from the multi-use trail on the north side of Shoe Factory Road to the Prairie Stone Business Park Nature Trail System would be created.
