Website offers in-depth look into IDOT construction projects
STATEâ€”Illinois Department of Transportation (IDOT) Secretary Gary Hannig announced recently IDOT’s new innovative website, The Construction Zone Dashboard.
The website provides up-to-date information on active construction contracts, including those funded through the American Recovery and Reinvestment Act of 2009, after contract execution.
â€œThis is one more way to offer more accessibility, accountability and transparency within our agency,â€ said IDOT Secretary Gary Hannig. â€œThe public can get important information about projects in their communities in the convenience of their own home 24 hours a day, seven days a week, just by logging on.â€
The public can search for contracts by location, IDOT District, or contractor. The website also provides a means for viewing the location of the contract on a map. It also provides information on the current status of the project as well as the location of the work, how far along the work is and an estimate of the completion date.
