Pace I-355 Corridor Transit Development Study

Wood Dale, Illinois

To determine whether an express Pace bus service along the I-355 corridor was needed, The Lakota Group and Nelson\Nygaard partnered to evaluate the arterial roadways for several communities. Following a system-wide analysis, Lakota evaluated the physical conditions of streetscapes along preferred routes, land-use patterns, street grid and urban form, development densities, and overall accessibility to destinations. Utilizing smart phone technology, Lakota recorded the travel time of different segments along the corridor and observed vehicle traffic, pedestrian traffic, sidewalk gaps, turning movements, and land use conditions. Prototypical and site specific design concepts were also developed to demonstrate potential physical enhancements and amenities.
