DuPage County Adopts Long Range Transportation Plan

The DuPage County Board voted unanimously Tuesday to adopt its Long Range Transportation Plan guiding transportation investments through 2040. 

The Long Range Transportation Plan, known as DuPage Connects, will govern transportation policies and practices at the County for the next 20 years. The $1.6 billion plan creates a vision and mission for the DuPage County Division of Transportation, serving as a guide for infrastructure maintenance, operations, and capital projects. 

“The plan focuses on a state of good repair, ensuring that our existing transportation system remains safe and usable,” said DuPage County Transportation Committee Chairman Don Puchalski. “Investments in system enhancements and expansion will relieve congestion, improve our multi-modal network, including sidewalks, that provide safe routes to school. We will provide better access to transit and new bicycle corridors emphasizing environmental stewardship and supporting our local economy. I want to thank the many residents and system stakeholders who provided valuable feedback.”

During the development of DuPage Connects, the Division of Transportation provided several opportunities for the public to provide input. Staff received more than 700 comments on system safety, congestion, signal coordination, bicycle, and pedestrian facilities and transit needs in DuPage. Those comments are incorporated into the final plan which can be found on the Division of Transportation’s Planning webpage at https://www.dupageco.org/transplan
