Program Outreach

The Illinois Department of Transportation will be holding public meetings throughout the state where IDOT staff will be present to answer questions and seek input for use in the planning and development of its upcoming FY 2019-2024 Proposed Highway Improvement Program as well as the draft Statewide Transportation Improvement Program for Fiscal Years 2018-2021.

We will also be highlighting several other IDOT programs such as the Illinois Transportation Enhancement Program, Economic Development Program, Long Range Transportation Plan and some new initiatives.  Input for these programs will help guide the future direction of transportation within each community and throughout the state.
