Presentation on future planning by IDOT in post-pandemic Illinois

With the implementation of Rebuild Illinois, federally required performance management, and the year 2020, there has been plenty of considerations for Planning and Programming at the Illinois Department of Transportation.

The first UTC Seminar Series presentation of the Spring 2021 Semester was led by Ms. Holly Bieneman, IDOT Director of the Office of Planning and Programming.

Ms. Bienenman reviewed new initiatives and how the pandemic and enhanced considerations of equity has affected them along with how the Department is working to mitigate the effects of the pandemic. After the presentation, participants can pose questions.

Revisit the presentation by downloading audio and visual recordings and the PowerPoint presentation.
