The Village of Savoy’s shared use path has undergone construction and will be complete by August 2022.
The path is located along the west side of First Street between Curtis Road and Windsor Road. Upon its completion, the Research Park community will have an accessible walking/biking pathway from the village to the park. This path will not only allow for faster commuting for Research Park employees and interns, but provide safety from the dangers of vehicular traffic.
This construction project is funded through a $1.2 million award from the Illinois Transportation Enhancement Program (ITEP), a program of the Illinois Department of Transportation. This new pathway along with the recent expansion of the MTD bus route and improvements to St. Mary’s Road will improve the accessibility of Research Park while introducing new opportunities to those at the university.
