Welcome to the project website dedicated to the Village of Plainfield’s 2012 Transportation Plan Update. This project is being entirely funded by a $120,000 grant awarded to the Village by Chicago Metropolitan Agency for Planning (CMAP). The Plainfield Transportation Plan Update will incorporate previous plans and studies, including the soon-to-be updated Comprehensive Plan and a transit-oriented development (TOD) study. The goal is to incorporate previous studies with new data and insights to help provide a blueprint for the Village’s future. The process starts today and begins with you, the residents, stakeholders, business owners and village officials. We need you to be the guiding voice, educators, and cheerleaders – working together to create, collaborate, and build consensus. What are the existing patterns of transit relationships? How do motorists, bicyclists, and pedestrians function together? Where are improvements needed?

The Project Team includes Village residents, stakeholders, business owners and officials, engineering firm Baxter & Woodman and planning consultants Teska Associates. Let’s plan!

    I would like to see sidewalks continuing along Rt. 59 heading North right past Dunkin Donuts/BR to lead to the 2 subdivisions on the east side of Rt.59 (Graver Country Estates & The Ponds) and along the west side of Rt. 59 also from Jewel heading North up to the Target/Chilis area.

      Too much money for such an ugly walkway. I like to enjoy my walks and have a nicer view. However you are asking tax payers to flip a huge bill so you can walk to get a coffee probably. And I though getting a cup of coffee was already expensive. You just made it cost several million dollars WOW. Because you really aren’t going to Menards without a car right?

    Meadow Lane in the Liberty Grove subdivision needs speed bumps. Traffic continues to worsen on this street because it connects Rt 126 and 143re street. Cars speed down the street oblivious to the posted speed limit signs and the fact that there is an elementary school located directly on this thoroughfare which children in the community walk to.

    We need to fix van dyke

    Happy to see that the 143rd. St. Extension is FINALLY inching forward. It cannot happen soon enough. Talk about safety, the traffic in downtown Plainfield is simply ridiculous at times. Children and adults alike are dodging heavy traffic downtown every day to try to get to and from their schools and shopping.
