The webinars are in addition to the 16 informational and feedback sessions hosted in person by IDOT earlier this year in communities throughout the state.

“We value feedback from the public and encourage anyone who missed our informational and feedback sessions to sign up for this webinar,” said Secretary Schneider. “With the help of the public, we can ensure that their transportation needs are addressed and that our programming system continues to serve them in the best way possible.”

Also called the Multi-Year Program (MYP), this planning and programming guide for transportation is based on current estimates of local, federal and state funding, including funding from Governor Pat Quinn’s Illinois Jobs Now! capital program, enacted in 2009. The current MYP for FY 2014-2019 totals about $9.5 billion for the state road and bridge systems alone, and focuses on maintenance and improvement of the road system and any interconnected modal systems such as transit, rail, or bike facilities, as appropriate.

To access the webinar, those interested will need a computer with internet access. The public meeting will include a short presentation and an opportunity for the public to ask questions and provide comments for the upcoming 2015-2020 improvement program.

Comments or questions will be accepted verbally during the webinar or can be submitted at this link http://www.dot.il.gov/opp/outreach/outreach.html.
