BikeConnect HOI is a regional bicycle planning process for the greater Peoria area.
The planning process will identify a proposed regional bicycle network within Peoria, Tazewell, and Woodford Counties. The primary focus of this regional planning process is to identify a proposed bicycle network that connects communities within the region.
The planning process will also identify ways that our region can become a more bicycle-friendly region, such as through educational efforts and policy initiatives.
There is increasing interest in bicycle transportation in our region. Local communities are developing more bikeways, and more roadway improvements are being planned to include bicycle accommodations.
Before BikeConnect HOI, there was no plan for a regional network that provides bicycle connections between communities. Also, there had never been a collaborative regional effort to examine potential policies and educational programs that could strengthen bicycle transportation in the region.
Here's the word on the street regarding BikeConnect HOI.
BikeConnect HOI was approved by the PPUATS Policy Committee on May 3, 2017!
We've now entered the most important phase of the plan process -- Implementation! Take a look at the plan below and join us in building a more bicycle-friendly region!
