Regional Transportation meeting for Bureau, La Salle and Putnam counties set Jan. 27

Meeting will take place in Mendota

“The traffic (last) weekend was pretty intense.” And that’s good news/bad news for Utica. Retailers welcome more visitors but the holiday and weekend congestion at Route 178 and U.S. 6 is becoming painful. Relief is on the way: Illinois Department of Transportation plans to install red lights at the four corners.

The next Region 3 - Human Services Services Transportation Plan Meeting will be 10 a.m. Friday, Jan. 27, at the Mendota Moose Lodge at 211 E. 12th St.

Region 3 consists of Bureau, DeKalb, Grundy, Kendall, La Salle, Lee, Ogle and Putnam counties.

Human service organizations with an interest in public transportation are encouraged the attend as well as anyone that is interested in public transit.

For further information, contact or call 815-433-5830.

There will also be reserved time slots available via Zoom for public comment between 10:15 and 10:30 a.m. To reserve a time, contact 815-433-5830.

The HSTP identifies transportation needs and develops solutions to improve transportation services for the general public. An emphasis is place on seniors, people with disabilities, individuals with lower income and veterans.
