IDOT Launches New Construction Website to Offer More Transparency within the Agency
Public Website Offers In-Depth Look into IDOT Construction Projects

SPRINGFIELD – Illinois Department of Transportation (IDOT) Secretary Gary Hannig announced today that IDOT’s new innovative website, The Construction Zone Dashboard, went live this morning.

The new website provides up to date information on currently active construction contracts, including those funded through the American Recovery and Reinvestment Act of 2009, after contract execution.

“This is one more way to offer more accessibility, accountability and transparency within our agency,” said IDOT Secretary Gary Hannig.  “The public can get important information about projects in their communities in the convenience of their own home 24 hours a day, 7 days a week, just by logging on.”

The public can search for contracts by location, IDOT District, or a 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.

For more information on projects in your area, visit the new site, the Construction Zone Dashboard, at www.dot.il.gov/dashboardpublic.  The user friendly website will be updated daily.
