Since developing standards for trail navigation signs in 2015, the District has installed navigation signage at Waterfall Glen, Fullersburg Woods, Danada, Herrick Lake, and St James Farm Forest Preserves.
In 2017, navigation signage is planned to be installed at Greene Valley, Meacham Grove, Springbrook Prairie, and Mallard Lake Forest Preserves. When complete, this installation will complete navigation signage at the preserves identified as the highest priority for navigation improvements. These preserves were identified as high priorities based on complexity of the trail systems and volume of trail users.
The project was bid in July 2017, with construction to begin in September, with anticipated completion in December.
The estimated project cost is $60,000, which will be funded with referendum bond funds.
