  • How do you use Curtis Road?
  • What are its current strengths and weaknesses?

The Curtis Road Corridor Study inlcudes 4.6 miles of Curtis Road from Neil Street/US 45 to High Cross Road/IL 130.  The goal of this study is to identify infrastructure that facilitates mobility within and between the surrounding jurisdictions as well as supports and protects the disparate surrounding land uses, including the University of Illinois agricultural research and educational fields known as the South Farms.

Light the NightDo You Have Lights On Your Bicycle So You Can Ride At Night?

Illinois Rules of the Road requires that every bicycle, when in use at nighttime, must be equipped with a lamp on the front able to emit a white light visible from a distance of at least 500 feet AND a red reflector on the rear visible from 100-600 feet.

Come by with your bicycle during the annual “Light the Night” and we’ll install a free front light, rear light and rear reflector on your bike while supplies last. Light sets will only be installed on bicycles without lights.
