Move Illinois: 2024 Long-Range Transportation Plan

Overview

Welcome to Move Illinois, the Illinois Department of Transportation’s (IDOT) 2024 Long-Range Transportation Plan (LRTP)!

The LRTP is a comprehensive and strategic roadmap that outlines transportation goals, objectives, and planned investments over an extended time frame, usually spanning 20 to 30 years. IDOT updates the LRTP every five years with the last plan released in 2019. Through Move Illinois: 2024 LRTP, IDOT is currently in the process of gathering data and community input to update the plan.

Learn more by viewing our online meeting and providing your input and vision for the future of Illinois transportation by taking our survey, Online Meeting and Survey

Public Engagement

Engaging with the people of Illinois is crucial in shaping the LRTP to reflect the diverse needs and vision of our communities. To encourage equitable input and access throughout the state, we are planning several in-person and online public events, stakeholder meetings, surveys and more. Our Move Illinois team provided in-person engagement opportunities attending several community events across the state during the fall of 2023 to talk about the future of transportation in the state.

Other Transportation Efforts & Studies

IDOT is simultaneously conducting multiple transportation plans and studies to capture the unique characteristics of different programs and transportation modes across the state. Through this collaborative approach, the 2024 LRTP will bring together all the findings into a single comprehensive document, forming a blueprint for transportation across the entire state. Join us in reshaping the way we Move Illinois. 

Phases of Engagement

Developing the 2024 LRTP is a multi-phase effort that will take place through 2024. The first phase involved collecting data from existing or ongoing transportation studies in the state and obtaining public feedback to help shape LRTP goals and objectives.

We gathered public input via statewide community events and survey to determine whether to retain or change the previous plan’s goals. Our first online public event and survey have been completed.

The second phase focuses on potential actions and strategies to include in the plan. The team is planning to be at more community events across the state in 2024 to talk about your ideas for the strategies that will shape our future transportation system.

Whether you're a commuter, a resident, or a visitor, we want to hear about your experiences with and insights on our state's transportation system. Our online and in-person engagement opportunities will be available in English, Spanish, and Chinese. Your input will help shape the goals and objectives in the LRTP that will guide transportation decisions for years to come. Don't miss this opportunity to be part of the 2024 LRTP and improve transportation in Illinois!

Next Steps

  1. The Move Illinois team is developing a list of strategies that provide solutions for the improvement areas identified through study data and public feedback.
  2. The public and stakeholders will be asked to provide their feedback and priorities for the identified strategies.
  3. IDOT will then review the feedback to prioritize the strategies.

In the third and final phase, IDOT will develop a draft plan considering ongoing public input before the final LRTP is published.
