During his first term, Mayor Emanuel launched Building a New Chicago, an $8 billion coordinated infrastructure plan to revitalize the city’s roads, rails, and runways. The plan has already led to the creation of 60,000 new jobs and will create another 40,000 jobs in the next four years.
Key to making streets work for everyone is strong partnerships between city and state transportation departments. We are pleased to welcome Erin Aleman, Director of the Illinois Department of Transportation Office of Planning and Programming.
Breakfast starts at 7:30am, and programming will commence at 8:00am.
