Maintaining its role as the transportation hub of the nation is a vital economic strategy for Illinois. Since its inception as a state, Illinois has relied on its geographic location and a strong infrastructure system to ensure its economic vitality.
However, challenges to the quality and capacity of the Illinois transportation system are extensive and rising. Illinois' road, bridge, transit, rail, air, and water infrastructure needs revitalization in order to protect the investments made by past generations and ensure future generations continue to have access to a safe, reliable infrastructure system and the economic opportunity it brings.
TFIC was organized in order that the many interests in transportation could speak with one voice for the transportation system as a whole.
