As Yorkville grows, the trails will connect existing and future developments providing a network on alternative transportation routes.
Funding Trail Construction
The City Council has voted to fund trail construction on Route 47 and Route 71 through IDOT's roadway construction of those highways. IDOT will pay 80% of the cost and the City will pay 20% of the cost. The City Council voted to accept the $1.7 million Kennedy Road Illinois Transportation Enhancement Project Grant and a non-profit group Push for the Path has been established to raise the funds for the City's 20% of this project.
To meet the need for pedestrian paths, we are working with developers, road-improvement projects, and applying for grants to help fund trail projects. Please feel free to call City Hall 630-553-4350 with any questions.
