IDOT strives to ensure that Illinois residents, businesses, and visitors are provided with a transportation system that is safe, accessible, sustainable, environmentally conscious, and makes connections whenever possible with the goal to someday offer a seamless travel experience.
IDOT’s Multi-Year Highway Improvement Program (MYP) provides Illinoisans and IDOT stakeholders with an improvement plan for Illinois’ transportation system within a proposed six-year program. IDOT understands that the department needs to look at a full range of transportation options, evaluate how they affect mobility for users, assess the current infrastructure, prioritize needed improvements based on system performance metrics and then, with available revenue sources, strive to integrate them into the overall IDOT transportation strategy.
Through IDOT’s MYP, the department strives to provide details on the plan’s funding, process, and proposed projects and initiatives that will preserve, maintain, improve, and expand Illinois’ system. It is IDOT’s expectation that these efforts continue to provide Illinois with safe, reliable, and accessible travel and freight options.
The FY 2016-2021 Proposed Highway Improvement Program represents Illinois’ proposed transportation improvement program for Illinois:
Project lists for the FY 2016-2021 Proposed Highway Improvement Program are provided by IDOT district. Other specialized breakouts are provided here for the varied needs of our transportation partners.
Projects in Legislative or County lists may appear in more than one legislative district or county
MYP projects can be viewed on an interactive map using IDOT’s Getting Around Illinois website. Please visit this site, click here, to view the current program’s projects.
Transportation impacts every community, big or small. It is important to us that Illinois residents are given the opportunity to review and comment on our transportation planning process. Designed to solicit and receive public feedback on transportation plans, programs, or individual projects, IDOT’s extensive public involvement program engages and communicates with travelers and communities statewide..
Please view the Multi-Year Program Outreach Meetings page for more information on how you can get involved!
Each fall, before the MYP’s release during the following spring, IDOT holds open house style public outreach meetings across the state. These meetings allow face to face interaction with the planners and implementers that ensure IDOT is addressing the needs of Illinois communities.
For the development of the FY 2017-2022 plan, IDOT plans to hold public outreach meetings across the state. The schedule for these meetings is available here.
