The Illinois Department of Transportation, Iowa Economic Development Authority, Iowa Department of Transportation, Iowa & Chicago Area Clean Cities coalitions, and the Bi-State Regional Commission hosted an information-sharing session on the I-80 Clean Fuels Corridor Project, a designated corridor of the Federal Highway Administration Alternative Fuels Corridor (AFC) initiative.
When the I-80 corridor is complete, electric vehicle (EV) charging will be available at least every 50 miles and compressed natural gas (CNG) fueling will be available at least every 150 miles, giving EV and CNG drivers confidence on the road.
While the I-80 Clean Fuels Corridor extends from New Jersey to the Iowa-Nebraska border, this session was intended for Illinoisans and Iowans who want to know more about the project, funding availability, and provide suggestions on station locations. Potential attendees included:
- Fuel providers
- Potential site hosts (e.g., convenience stores, fueling stations, hotels, travel destinations)
- Municipalities, metropolitan planning organizations, and councils of government
- Energy, transportation, and sustainability officials
- Fleets using, or open to using, alternative fuels
- Community members
- And others
