CTH C Multi-Use Path

CTH C Multi-Use Path
Transportation | Non-Traditional/Multi-Use Path Design

This 1.0-mile trail required acquisition of land from adjacent neighbors’ front yards and was built along the rural cross-section of CTH C. In addition to the standard 10-foot-wide asphalt trail, a pedestrian bridge crosses the Des Plaines River. The structure design included hydrologic and hydraulic analysis within Des Plaines River mapped floodplain, extensive public involvement with alternative alignments, tie-in with Pleasant Prairie’s future trail extension, significant utility coordination/relocation, a boardwalk within wetlands, stormwater modifications, and detailed design minimizing landscape loss for residents and addressing privacy concerns.
