Public involvement is an interactive process that allows stakeholders to offer important input on solutions that address the community’s concerns.
The Community Advisory Group – or CAG – is a group of volunteer stakeholders that represents the community and functions as a liaison between IDOT and the public. The CAG shares issues and concerns and identifies and evaluates potential alternatives and solutions.

CAG members met for the first time to better understand their role in the IL 43 Phase I Study, and got to know the Project Study Team. The Project Study Team began listening to community, economic, and transportation issues and needs that should be addressed during the study.
