Last Chance to Share Your Kane County Transportation Ideas!

Is there a transportation bottleneck that’s been getting under your skin for years? Are Kane County roads friendly to bicyclists? Want to let the “powers that be” know what’s really going on when you’re trying to get from Point A to Point B?

Your last chance to express yourself is coming up fast.

The deadline is Dec. 5 to take the five-minute survey that will help Kane County transportation experts form the plans for the future and give you a chance to sleep at night knowing you’ve done what you can to make Kane County a better place.

The ‘What’ and ‘Why’

kdot-survey-roundaboutThe Kane County Division of Transportation is in the process of updating its 2040 Long-Range Transportation Plan, a blueprint identifying the top transportation and mobility needs in Kane County through the year 2040. The plan will be a crucial guide for the improvement of safe and reliable roadways, public transportation, and bicycle and pedestrian systems while preserving its natural resources and encouraging economic growth throughout the county.

A big part of the process has been gathering input from residents, employees and visitors to Kane County through an interactive, online survey. The survey has been open since early October and to date has gathered responses from almost 2,000 people.

“We are overwhelmed with the response so far and want to encourage people to participate in the survey up to the last minute,” said Carl Schoedel, county engineer and head of the Kane County Division of Transportation. “We want to hear from people who use the roads, ride the buses and bike and walk the sidewalks and trails in Kane County.”
