SUMMARY

Kaskaskia Engineering Group, LLC (KEG) provided engineering services for the design of a new bike trail from the intersection of Foley Drive and Wesley Drive to Signal Hill School in Belleville, Illinois.  The purpose of the trail was to provide a safe route to school for the students of the Signal Hill School District, as well as provide recreational opportunities for the residents of West Belleville. The project was funded by the Federal Safe Routes to School Program.

The trail utilized the right of way of Foley Drive and an abandoned railroad corridor to construct a 12-foot wide asphalt trail with aggregate shoulders and a pedestrian signalized crossing at Wesley Drive.

The project involved coordination with FHWA, IDOT, School District 181, local residents, and the City of Belleville.
