RTA logo Rolling Meadows Golf Road Transit and Pedestrian Mobility Study

Study Description

This project provided recommendations aimed at improving pedestrian access, circulation and safety along Golf Road (IL Route 58) from Interstate 290 (IL Route 53) to Algonquin Road (IL Route 62), a 2 mile corridor that is home to several thousand professional jobs. The study focused on ways to make the area transit and pedestrian friendly, and examined the possibility of increased local transit service.

Program:Community Planning
Program Year:2011
Project Type(s):Transit Improvement Plan
Grantee:City of Rolling Meadows
Current Activities:The final plan was presented to and approved by the City Council on March 19, 2013. An Implementation Task Force has been formed and continues to pursue funding options for plan recommendations, particularly pedestrian improvements and additional shuttle service.

The City received Congestion Mitigation and Air Quality (CMAQ) funding, via the RTA's Access to Transit Improvement Program, to install two pedestrian signal heads, two miles of sidewalks, and five crosswalks in the study area. Installation of these improvements was completed in late 2016.

Pace initiated Call-n-Ride service for the corridor in October 2012. Additionally, the Implementation Task Force is working with the TMA of Lake Cook to investigate possible Shuttle Bug service.
