Public involvement is an interactive process that provides information to the public so they may make informed decisions and offer important input into the solutions that address the community's concerns. A public involvement program has been designed to encourage your participation throughout the study.
As the Illinois Route 47 Phase I Study progresses, we will periodically update this website to keep you informed of our progress.

The two meetings had a combined attendance of over 140 stakeholders who issued more than 60 comments on the project. The comments received included support for the project and the proposed alternatives as well as identifying concerns with proposed design elements associated with each alternative.
