Illinois' Infrastructure Moves the Nation
At the heart of the country, Illinois is the nexus point for shipping finished goods, raw materials, and agricultural products around the nation and to the world. Transportation infrastructure supports the people of Illinois by ensuring safe, efficient trips to work, school, family, and leisure activities. Without great infrastructure, Illinois cannot thrive.
For too long, Illinois underfunded its infrastructure system, leading to systemwide decay. In 2019, the Illinois legislature and Governor Pritzker approved the REBUILD Illinois capital plan to begin serious investment in maintaining our transportation system. Infrastructure funding remains an important priority for Illinois, with major rebuilding projects, system expansion, and safety improvements needed in addition to maintenance funding.
The Transportation for Illinois Coalition seeks to bring together organizations advocating for funding Illinois' transportation infrastructure system.
