Transportation stakeholders formed a transportation plan steering committee in 2018 and worked with the Arrowhead Regional Development Commission (ARDC) to develop the draft road and bridge plan. A key component to plan development was the transportation plan survey that ran from June 19 through July 26, 2019. The 200-plus responses provided crucial guidance during the planning process.

“The final public meeting scheduled for March was canceled due to weather, and then COVID-19 hit,” Cook County Board Chair Myron Bursheim stated. “We feel it is imperative to provide the public with one more opportunity for comment before approving the plan later this fall.”

For more information on the plan development process, individuals may call (218) 387-3014.
