June 21, 2018
11:30 am
14 E. Jackson Blvd, Suite 1600 - Dublin Room, Chicago, IL

Please join us Thursday, June 21 over lunch to learn how you can help get CrossRail Chicago in the region’s master plan.

The Chicago Metropolitan Agency for Planning (CMAP) has scheduled the public comment period for ON TO 2050, the comprehensive plan for NE Illinois.The draft plan will be made public on June 15 and comments will be accepted through August 14.  Public meetings will be held from June 19 through July 19, wrapping up with a public hearing on July 25.

CrossRail Chicago would combine multiple priorities, including O’Hare Express, modernized Metra, Southside transit and high-speed rail into a more cost-effective program.  Making CrossRail happen would require an unprecedented collaboration across agencies and jurisdictions, but it would offer the biggest return on investment of any transportation project in Chicago or the Midwest.  Your input is needed to get it into the plan.

Join us on June 21 to learn more about CrossRail and how you can get involved.
