IDOT appropriations fully obligated (2-24-10)
As of February 19, 2010, the Illinois Department of Transportation (IDOT) has obligated 100 percent of its ARRA appropriation, a total of $935,592,704, according to the Federal Highway Administration. The activities reflect how the municipalities, working through the CMAP Council of Mayors, CMAP, and IDOT, have collaborated to administer ARRA formula funding that came to northeastern Illinois. It was important for all funds to be obligated or under grant by the first anniversary of the stimulus bill, as any unobligated funds would be redistributed after that deadline. Our region has very significant transportation needs, and the regional coordination has helped to ensure that the stimulus funding is addressing a portion of those needs.
