IDOT Listening Tour to Make Stop in Galena

Representatives from the Illinois Department of Transportation will be making a stop in Galena this coming Friday as part of their statewide listening tour. The Galena Chamber of Commerce will host the event at the DeSoto House Hotel located at 230 S. Main Street in Galena, Illinois.

The event is open to the public who wish to express their concerns or introduce an idea to help create a better transportation environment for the Northwest Region of Illinois. People who cannot make the event can still participate by filling out the SURVEY online.

Invitation from IDOT -

"The Illinois Department of Transportation and Acting Illinois Transportation Secretary Randy Blankenhorn, in coordination with the Illinois Capital Development Board, invite you to take part in a series of informal public meetings being conducted throughout the state.

This dialogue, emphasizing quality of life and economic growth, will establish priorities for future investment in our transportation system.

These meetings are intended to be a listening tour, sparking discussion that ultimately leads to a package of recommendations that can be presented to Governor Rauner and General Assembly for consideration this spring.

Dates and locations will be updated as additional meetings are confirmed.

Our mission is to start a statewide conversation that lays the groundwork for a realistic, sustainable plan for bringing our infrastructure into the 21st century."
