The Illinois Department of Transportation (IDOT) is accepting applications for the Local Highway Safety Improvement Program – Fiscal Year 2017. Applications are due to IDOT by Wednesday, June 15, 2016, in an electronic version (email or on a CD).
The maximum federal share is 90%, with a 10% local share. This program funds all phases of a project (preliminary engineering, design, construction and construction engineering). Projects should improve a location/feature, or address a highway safety need that’s contributing to severe roadway crashes. Also, projects should be initiated in FY 2017.
