IDOT Releases Illinois Aviation System Plan


On August 4, 2022, the Illinois Department of Transportation (IDOT) released the Illinois Aviation System Plan. The plan identifies the needs and goals of the state’s airports and is the first comprehensive study of its kind in more than 25 years. 

The report follows last year’s release of IDOT’s Illinois Aviation Economic Impact Analysis, which found that the state’s airports annually contribute $95.5 billion to the state’s economy and support nearly 493,000 jobs.

A press release about the Aviation System Plan is available here.
