Illinois Transportation Secretary Ann L. Schneider last week unveiled a $9.2 billion multi-year program that combines planning and programming for highways, airports, rail and mass transit from fiscal 2013 to fiscal 2018.

“We are excited to begin this more multi-modal approach toward planning and programming transportation projects and funding, further promoting our goal to develop an even more integrated, effective and efficient transportation system for many years to come,” Schneider said.

The plan relies on $6.5 billion in federal funding, $2.2 billion in state funding, and $454 million in local funding. It includes maintenance of 2,302 miles of road and replacement or rehabilitation of 508 bridges.
