The Illinois Department of Transportation (IDOT) is asking for additional input from the public in developing its Long Range Transportation Plan. Feedback and comments can be provided at AllOurIdeas.org/IDOTideas. It’s an interactive site allowing participants to vote for ideas to improve transportation in Illinois or submit new ideas. The site is available through March 8, 2017. The responses will be considered as the agency develops future transportation policies, goals and investments.
Last year, IDOT received more than 700 survey responses during the initial comment period. More than a quarter of respondents indicated that safety was their top priority. Concerns were also expressed about maintaining Illinois’ transportation infrastructure and the critical part it plays in the state’s economy.
