Village of Arlington Heights Trustees last week approved the a portion of a joint bicycle path with Rolling Meadows that will be constructed along Euclid Avenue near the Arlington Downs development at Euclid Avenue and Rohlwing Road. The path will run east to Salt Creek Lane.
On January 17, 2017, the Village Board unanimously passed a cost-sharing resolution to spend $90,500 to build the bicycle path. A week earlier, the Rolling Meadows city council approved (4-2) the Rolling Meadows portion of the bicycle path. The City of Rolling Meadows will use a $691,260 federal grant obtained in 2014 to fund most of the project. Terms of the federal grant require the project start by Fall 2017. Construction is scheduled to begin in October 2017, and be completed by July 2018.
Arlington Heights and Rolling Meadows spent over $5,500 in preliminary engineering costs for the half-mile path.
The new path will run along the north side of Euclid Avenue, between Salt Creek Lane in Arlington Heights and Rohlwing Road in Arlington Heights. Further development is anticipated for the Arlington Downs mixed-use development property, which already features high-rise luxury apartments, and includes plans for upscale stores and restaurants.
