Long Range Transportation Planning

Feb 5, 2015

IDOT makes their own plans for the use of Federal highway funds. IDOT’s 0-6 Year plan includes money for the Morton intersection at Jackson & Main ($3.9 Million). In addition, our Tri-County Regional Planning Commission makes it’s own plans by accepting project proposals for Federal and State funding from local communities in our area and, using a point system, determining which projects are the most deserving. They are prioritized into 0-5 years, 6-10 years, and 11-25 years. The Peoria-Pekin Metropolitan Planning Area Technical Committee (on which our own Craig Loudermilk serves) makes the recommendations to the Policy Committee (on which I serve) and the Policy Committee accepts, modifies, or rejects their recommendations. Here are some of the upcoming major projects for Morton that are scheduled or expected to receive 70% from the Federal government: ...
