Welcome Glen Ellyn Illinois - Interior Page
Has a traffic analysis been performed to identify the impact of increased traffic from the proposed development?

Yes, a traffic impact study was conducted with conservative estimates based in part on higher traffic counts on Main Street because of ongoing construction projects on Park Boulevard and Taylor Street this past summer. It is expected that the traffic generated by the development will be low, with approximately 38 vehicles entering the site and 31 vehicles leaving the site during the busiest traffic hour of the day. The Village’s traffic consultant agrees with the findings of the traffic impact study submitted by the developer’s consultant. The findings show that the existing roadway network is adequate to accommodate the additional traffic expected to be generated by the development. While delays would continue to be experienced when gates are down for train activity, vehicular traffic delays at intersections are projected to increase by only a few seconds following the completion of the development.
