Blackwell - Mack Road Trail

The project will construct a 1-mile-long, 10-foot-wide multipurpose asphalt path on the north side of Mack Road between Route 59 and the turnaround at the McKee Marsh parking lot. It will also modify the pedestrian signal at Route 59 to connect the trail to sidewalks and trails within the Fox Hollow subdivision. Warrenville will expand and upgrade the bridge on Mack Road to accommodate an elevated path.


Status: In Progress

The project is currently in progress. 

Project Need

Blackwell is the hub of a trail network that connects the Illinois Prairie Path to the West Branch DuPage River Trail. Per a 2016 intergovernmental agreement,  the Forest Preserve District has committed to work with Warrenville to construct this trail to increase access to the West Branch DuPage River Trail and thousands of acres of open space, especially for residents of the Fox Hollow and Maple  Hill subdivisions.
