This project will study the feasibility of extending the Centennial Trail and the I&M Canal Trail from its current terminus in Willow Springs, north through the villages of Justice, Bedford Park, and Summit, to connect to the Chicago Portage National Historic Site (in the Village of Lyons). The purpose of the study is to identify and evaluate potential trail alignments or routes within the canal corridor, and to choose a preferred route that can be carried forward for further development. The choice of a preferred route will be based on technical, engineering analysis, as well as stakeholder and community input and preferences. The feasibility study will include an implementation strategy with near- and mid-term actions, as well as potential funding sources for further study, engineering, and trail construction.
