Mount Prospect Completes Rand Road Corridor Plan; RTA Support Helps Bring Plan to Life
March 1, 2017
We are pleased to report that the Village of Mount Prospect Village Board recently accepted the Rand Road Corridor Plan, which was partially funded by the RTA. The Plan includes proposed improvements to the approximately two-mile corridor to improve overall traffic flow and multi-modal access to the businesses along the corridor. It focuses on land use and bicycle and pedestrian improvements to support transit use along the corridor, which is served by four Pace bus routes. Funding for the $125,000 plan is made up of $100,000 from the RTA’s Community Planning program and $25,000 from the Village of Mount Prospect.
The plan's recommendations focus on land use, zoning, urban design, and market characteristics of the corridor, with a primary focus on transportation elements of the corridor. In addition to the four Pace routes currently serving the corridor, Rand Road has been identified by Pace as a future Pulse (express bus) corridor. By focusing on transit-supportive land uses and enhanced pedestrian access now, the Village can help prepare the corridor for this future service. Additional recommendations include potential intersection improvements to improve traffic (including bus) flow, urban design features to enhance the physical appearance of the corridor and implementation strategies.
