Hello.
I was wondering, is it possible for me to walk from Lombard to Roselle? My destination in Roselle is approximately 701 E Irving Park Road.
In Lombard I would depart from Westmore Meyers road.

I've found walking directions, but they mention that there may not be any pedestrian roads (!).

I really hope someone can help me out on this.

Thank you.

Distance alone would be ridiculous. If you have any idea of the sorts of roads that exist between the two it would obvious that even a bicyclist would be very out of place and a pedestrian would be at grave risk of traffic incident.

Are you training for a marathon or something?

Seriously though, it is not safe to walk such a long distance during winter, you can get frost bite or get ran over by a car.

Google maps shows it to be 11 miles. It would take you 3+ hours walking, but it's possible, as long as you're not planning on making that your daily walking commute.

Why not just take a cab. Irving Pk Rd is a big street and its not really walkable.

What kind of physical shape are you in? Wear an OSHA-accepted fluorescent vest. If at night several bright lights. Yes you can do it. What is the purpose, exercise or to get there without driving. If the latter, Metra UP-W to the loop then MD-W back out. Circuitous, but PACE hasn't figured out anyone wants to go between those places.

The thing is, from other threads you've started, it seems like this wouldn't be a one shot, one way walk. If you're planning on walking to treatment in Roselle from the place you're staying at in Lombard and then back again, I just think that's nuts. I can't imagine after walking for at least 2 hours you'd be in the best state for getting treatment. ANd then turning around and walking another 2 or 3 hours back to Lombard. It's just not set up for pedestrians. It still boggles my mind that there's some place in Roselle, of all places (I grew up there) that would have treatment you can't get anywhere that's better located for you. Irving Park itself would be the least of your worries, it's not that bad at the stretch you mention, but you'd have to cross Lake St somewhere and that's a bear. I don't know the roads in Lombard, but I know they have a lot of really MAJOR roads there.

Would Pace dial a ride be an option?

Hi everyone!
I came back home (from Illinois) about a month ago.
I was able to get friends to give me rides to my appointments in Lombard, and for a month I was living on the WEst Side of Chicago, literally a 10 min walk from the Western Train Station so I could easily get to Lombard that way

Thanks everyone.
