It's Time to Invest in Our Future

Illinois last approved major capital funding in early 2009, 10 years after the prior capital program was approved. A decade later, with road, bridge, and transit conditions in much worse shape over the past 10 years and facing a dire situation ahead, the Transportation for Illinois Coalition (TFIC) is making a strong case for both political parties to turn their general support for construction funding in the November election into a comprehensive program that will make Illnois roads safer and easier to navigate, put thousands of people to work, and give Illinoisans more reasons to live, work, play and thrive here for generations to come.

 

Because of a lack of sustainable funding--driven by increased construction and maintenance costs and sagging revenues to meet those demands--Illinois faces seeing only 6 in 10 miles of roads in acceptable condition in four years. That is a decline of 2 in every 10 miles of road from today's condition.

 

Now is the time to invest in our transportation system and in the future of our state.
