SPRINGFIELD (AP) – The Illinois Department of Transportation is announcing two webinars for the public to weigh in on the agency’s next 5-year transit plan.

Secretary of Transportation Ann Schneider said Wednesday the online meetings will take place on Oct. 28 and Oct. 29. Each is from 5 p.m. to 6 p.m.

They will address plans for building or repairing highways, bridges, airports, and train routes from 2015 to 2020.

IDOT engineers will host the webinars designed to give residents and businesses a chance to better understand and discuss project priorities.

The webinars are in addition to 16 informational meetings and feedback sessions IDOT hosted earlier this year throughout the state.

Participating in the webinars requires reserving space online.
