The Chicago Metropolitan Agency for Planning (CMAP) welcomes feedback from the public on three proposed programs that help communities prosper through transportation investments.
More than 50 projects, using more than $400 million in federal funds, are included in the proposal, which is funded by the regional Surface Transportation Program Shared Fund, Congestion Mitigation and Air Quality Improvement Program and locally programmed Transportation Alternatives Program. The public can submit comments on the proposed programs through 4:00 p.m. Friday, July 30.
The three programs help advance ON TO 2050, the region's long-range plan, and its principles of inclusive growth, resilience, and prioritized investment. These investments in mobility options spur economic opportunity for communities with low incomes, people of color, and people with disabilities across northeastern Illinois. Projects also help the region's infrastructure adapt to changes in climate and technology, and carefully target resources to improve quality of life for all residents.
