Public Stakeholder Involvement
Considering the likelihood of considerable impacts this project may have on the community and the environment, and the wide range of improvement possibilities, IDOT has designated this project to be guided under the principles of Context Sensitive Solutions (CSS). CSS is a collaborative and interdisciplinary approach which involves all stakeholders in the project's development. Its purpose is to design cost-effective transportation solutions that best fit in harmony with the surrounding community while maintaining safety and mobility. A "stakeholder" is someone who may be affected by the project --- stakeholders can be businesses, schools, elected officials, public agencies, land owners, or the general public. We want to get you, as a stakeholder and part of the concerned public, involved in the Phase I Location and Environmental Studies. Your participation ensures that we develop the solution which best accommodates the needs of the community.
