County Executive Walsh Launches “Will Connects 2040” to update County’s Long Range Transportation Plan
Will County Executive Larry Walsh has invited local transportation and business leaders to officially kick off the start of “Will Connects 2040”, the County’s initiative to update its current long range transportation plan. Will Connects 2040 will establish a strategic direction and set priorities for future transportation investments throughout the County while considering all modes and modal connections, including roads, transit, bicycle and pedestrian, aviation, intermodal networks, and freight.
Will Connects 2040, Will County's long range transportation planning initiative, has kicked off with the goal of creating a blueprint for transportation investment and policy for fast growing Will County. Stakeholders throughout the County are invited to participate in developing the plan. Will County Division of Transportation (DOT) has launched an online community engagement tool on its project website,
www.WillConnects2040.org to gather community input in an interactive and engaging way. The online survey is currently active.
