Cook County funds now available for transportation projects

Local governments and other public agencies in Cook County can apply for some of the $8.5 million available for new transportation-related projects.

The new program seeks projects that go beyond the county’s traditional focus on roads to include pedestrian, bicycle, transit, and freight-related improvements, said John Yonan, county superintendent of transportation and highways. This is part of the county’s new long-range transportation plan, which was announced last summer and is its first in 75 years…Please click here (and scroll down) to read Mary Wisniewski’s story in the Tribune.

The next Invest in Cook workshop is from 9:00 AM – 11:00 AM February 28, 2017.  The workshop will be held in the 17th floor conference room in Cook County’s George W. Dunne Building at 69 W Washington St, Chicago, IL 60602. Please RSVP to to reserve a place.
