If there is no new funding, 1 in 3 miles of Illinois' roads will be in unacceptable condition.

 

What does this mean for Illinois motorists? Higher car repair and maintenance costs and growing congestion.

 

The current state of our roadways costs Illinois drivers an additional $37/month in increased vehicle repairs due to driving on roads in need of repair, according to The Road Information Project. Those costs will continue to rise as our transportation network falls into disrepair.

 

But, the TFIC plan to improve our roads and bridges, provide ongoing funding for transit to reduce congestion, and make funding available for other projects like CREATE and rail would cost Illinois drivers $7.30/month on average.

Annual MYP Funding and Backlog Miles

The historically high backlog will quickly become difficult to manage without sustainable, increased funding.
