The Village of Northbrook initiated the planning process in 2017 for a new Master Bicycle and Pedestrian Plan. This plan serves as vision and blueprint for building a more bikeable and walkable Northbrook. Epstein provided the Village with professional engineering, stakeholder engagement and grant writing services to implement the Village's Master Bicycle and Pedestrian Plan.
Engineering services have included preparation of pavement marking and improvement plans, cost estimates, and construction details. The project includes a mini traffic circle, pavement markings, and wayfinding signs to connect the bicycle generators of West Park and Northbrook Metra Station. Epstein prepared construction documents for the installation of a half mile of shared lane markings on Church Street and Illinois Road near the Village’s central business district.
Epstein prepared an RTA Access to Transit Grant for the installation of a new bike parking shelter, shared lane markings, wayfinding and improved transit signage in the vicinity of the Northbrook Metra station.
