Marion Bicycle Master Plan

Southern Illinois Metropolitan Planning Organization


Horner & Shifrin prepared a detailed Bicycle Master Plan that included an inventory of existing bike facilities and conditions for bicycling in the City, analysis of existing roadways that accommodate bike facilities and provided recommendations for specific long and short-term bike infrastructure projects.

The plan includes a community engagement process to include input from the public. The plan will include specific recommendations to promote access from residential areas to the recently planned and funded Crab Orchard Greenway, downtown Marion Tower Square Plaza, major employers, and park facilities and schools throughout the city.

Horner & Shifrin included programmatic elements that will encourage bicycling in the city, address education for bicyclists and drivers, provide recommendations for enforcement of traffic laws, evaluation of progress and engineering design guidelines for implementation. .
