Information maintained by the Legislative Reference Bureau
Updating the database of the Illinois Compiled Statutes (ILCS) is an ongoing process. Recent laws may not yet be included in the ILCS database, but they are found on this site as Public Acts soon after they become law. For information concerning the relationship between statutes and Public Acts, refer to the Guide.

Because the statute database is maintained primarily for legislative drafting purposes, statutory changes are sometimes included in the statute database before they take effect. If the source note at the end of a Section of the statutes includes a Public Act that has not yet taken effect, the version of the law that is currently in effect may have already been removed from the database and you should refer to that Public Act to see the changes made to the current law.

    (605 ILCS 5/4-220)
    Sec. 4-220. Bicycle and pedestrian ways.
    (a) Bicycle and pedestrian ways shall be given full consideration in the planning and development of transportation facilities, including the incorporation of such ways into State plans and programs.
    (b) In or within one mile of a municipality with a population of over 1,000 people, and subject to the Department's option in subsection (e), the Department shall establish and solely fund bicycle and pedestrian ways in conjunction with the construction, reconstruction, or other change of any State transportation facility except:
        (1) in pavement resurfacing projects that do not
widen the existing traveled way or do not provide stabilized shoulders;
        (2) where approved by the Secretary of Transportation
based upon documented safety issues, excessive cost, or absence of need; or
        (3) where the municipality passes a resolution
stating that a bicycle or pedestrian way does not fit within its development plan.
    (c) Bicycle and pedestrian ways may be included in pavement resurfacing projects when local support is evident or the bicycling and walking accommodations can be added within the overall scope of the original roadwork.
    (d) The Department shall establish design and construction standards for bicycle and pedestrian ways. Beginning July 1, 2007, this Section shall apply to planning and training purposes only. Beginning July 1, 2008, this Section shall apply to construction projects.
    (e) If programmed funds identified in Section 2705-615 of the Department of Transportation Law are not expended for 5 years, the Department has the option to use those funds to pay the cost of bicycle and pedestrian ways in roadway projects affected by this Section.
