Study Description

This project identified opportunities to enhance commuter access to the Naperville Metra station by evaluating alternative modes of transportation such as bus, bicycle and walking. The project evaluated the feasibility of a bus depot, provided access and circulation improvements, and prepared recommendations to create a safer and more efficient multi-modal environment.

Program:Community Planning
Program Year:2011
Project Type(s):Transit Improvement Plan
Grantee:City of Naperville
Current Activities:On April 17, 2012 the Naperville City Council accepted the Naperville Metra Station Bus Depot and Commuter Access Feasibility Study Technical Memorandum and directed staff to incorporate improvements into their Capital Improvement Program. On February 19, 2013, the City of Naperville FY14-18 Capital Improvement Program was adopted by the City Council. It contained the following improvements related to this study: modifications to the Eastern Burlington Lot on the north side of the train tracks; modifications to the south side of the train tracks; and conversion of North Avenue (currently one-way westbound) to two-way traffic between Washington Street and Ellsworth Street.
