“Before you ask for any construction money, though, you got to get that alignment done, and there’s a lot of public involvement to get that done. So we’ll be working on that we’ll be trying to keep it moving forward,” Risinger says.
Risinger is a former engineer with the I-DoT and left the state senate three years ago. He says another focus is to help the commission settle its payment to an consultant to develop a regional economic development plan. He says that will help the commission get back to focusing on other projects.
