Third Public Meeting

NARROWED LIST OF 
IMPROVEMENT ALTERNATIVES PRESENTED FOR PUBLIC REVIEW

 

Nearly 300 residents, organizations and other stakeholders joined an interactive, online public Meeting on October 27, 2022, to receive an update on the I-80 Mississippi River Bridge project, review recommendations on a narrowed list of potential improvement alternatives, and provide feedback to the project team.

 

Following a video presentation and viewing of study exhibits, participants asked questions and provided feedback directly to representatives of the Illinois and Iowa Departments of Transportation.

 

Please review the information presented at the meeting HERE, and then provide your feedback HERE. The full meeting recording, a summary video, meeting exhibits, newsletter, and Q&A discussion, are all available for review on the meeting materials page.
