The proposed North Branch Trail extension will connect to the existing North Branch Trail located on the north side of the Devon/Caldwell Avenue intersection and continue southeast to connect to the future trail (Weber Spur) proposed by the City of Chicago to be located on the north side of Foster Avenue east of the Edens Expressway/ Foster Avenue interchange.
The trail will provide the residents of Indian Road Woods, Old Edgebrook, Albany Park, Sauganash, and Forest Glen direct access to the existing North Branch Bicycle Trail. This project will serve as an important segment of the connection between the North Branch Trail and the City of Chicago Lakefront Trail. Consideration will be given to addressing all modes of transportation and striving to preserve scenic, aesthetic, historic, and environmental resources while maintaining and enhancing safety and mobility. The trail will also provide safety beneﬁts by replacing the existing narrow and sub-standard sidewalks.
