Transportation Priorities

The NWMC Transportation Committee and Board have adopted an updated set of Transportation Priority projects.  The list demonstrates the need for increased investment in our region's infrastructure.  Projects on the list were submitted by NWMC members or recommended by staff from existing plans or programs, including the IDOT Multi-Year Program, Illinois Tollway Capital Program, CMAP Go To 2040 Regional Comprehensive Plan, RTA Regional Plan, programs of transit providers (Metra, CTA and Pace), county transportation plans as well as past NWMC Transportation Priority lists. 

The list is not exhaustive, but will provide our state and federal legislators an overview of the vast infrastructure needs in our region.  As demonstrated in the 2015 NWMC Legislative Program, the overall theme of our transportation priorities remains making critical investments in our infrastructure to grow jobs and to provide sustainable transportation funding.
