DuPage County is proud to be the home of the first successful rail-to-trail conversion in the United States - the Illinois Prairie Path. The foresight of the volunteers involved in the 1963 transfer of railroad right-of-way to DuPage County led to a nation-wide rail-to-trail movement and an outstanding legacy for County residents. Today, DuPage is home to more than 500 miles of bikeways and trails that are, together, an integral part of our county's identity.

DuPage County DOT (DuDOT) has been a leader in planning, design, implementation, and management of bikeways and trails for over sixty years.  DuDOT collaborates with numerous partner agencies and DuPage constituents to implement bikeway improvements.  We create partnerships to fill missing gaps in the regional trail system, plan new regional networks, and connect people to their favorite destinations.
