Illinois transportation officials are announcing a series of meetings to allow the public to have input on the state's long-range transit plan for 2015 through 2020.
Ann Schneider heads Illinois' Transportation Department. She said Monday the meeting for IDOT's District 4 will be at the agency headquarters in Peoria on Sept. 16.
Residents and business officials will be able to understand and have input on priority transit projects during the next five to seven years.
It's officially called the Multi-Modal Transportation Improvement Plan. The current one is estimated to cost more than $9 billion and run through 2019. It covers roads and bridges along with mass transit, railroads, bike ways and more.
Public meetings will be informal with no presentation planned.
