The Illinois Department of Transportation is hosting a series of public meetings regarding future transportation projects, and the first one will be held today (Monday) in Collinsville.  The meeting is scheduled from 4-6pm at IDOT District 8 Headquarters in Collinsville, and will be conducted in an open house format.  

IDOT Spokesman Paris Ervin says this is just the latest step in developing the Multi-Year Program, and offers the public a chance to weigh in on the plans.  She says all comments will be heard.
