Trailnet and Active Trans
Trailnet Selected as Technical Assistance Provider in Chicago Initiative
We are excited to announce that Trailnet will be providing technical assistance on our traffic calming model to the Active Transportation Alliance. The Active Transportation Alliance is a non-profit advocacy organization that works to improve conditions for bicycling, walking and transit and engage people in healthy and active ways to get around the Chicago region.
In April, Trailnet staff met with Active Transportation Alliance staff in Chicago to talk about their project and tour the target communities. Together they scouted sites for upcoming demonstrations and discussed project details. We are happy to announce that, as a result of our Plan 4 Health, we will collaborate on a project that includes several pop-up traffic calming demonstrations across the Chicago region.
The demonstrations will highlight traffic calming initiatives and help residents visualize what complete streets programs could look like in their communities. Trailnet staff will return to the city for a two-day event on June 8 and 9 in the community of Willow Springs.
