Veterans Memorial Trail - Centennial Trail to International Parkway (Completed October 2014)
Project Name:
Veterans Memorial Trail - Centennial Trail to International Parkway (Completed October 2014)
Project Type: Development
Project Status: Completed
Project Location:
The project was located at the Veterans Memorial Trail along I-355 between the Centennial Trail in Keepataw Preserve to International Parkway in DuPage Township.
Project Description:
The Veterans Memorial Trail - Centennial Trail to International Parkway project was a multi-use trail project that was constructed in two segments. The two segments connect the Centennial Trail in Keepataw Preserve to an existing bike trail operated by the Village of Woodridge at International Parkway.

Segment I, a 0.61-mile trail from Centennial Trail to Bluff Road, was completed utilizing an existing haul road and low-level bridge across the Des Plaines River remaining from the construction of I-355.

Segment II, Bluff Road to International Parkway, extended the trail north to International Parkway on property owned by the Illinois Tollway.

The 10-foot-wide, multi-purpose trail is paved with asphalt for non-motorized, bicycle and pedestrian use.

This project was funded by the Forest Preserve District's Capital Improvement Program, an Illinois Transportation Enhancement Program (ITEP) grant, and a partnership with the Village of Woodridge.

Work on Segment I began in September 2011 and concluded in October 2012.

Work on Segment II began in October 2012 and was completed in October 2014.
