Please join us on Tuesday, November 14th for our November Luncheon, a presentation by the Illinois Tollway on the I-90 Jane Adams Expressway (Smart Road) project. 

The Illinois State Highway Toll Authority recently completed a project to rebuild and widen 62 miles of the Jane Adams Memorial Tollway (1-90) as a 21st century, state-of-the-art transportation corridor. The $2.5 billion project has increased capacity, reduced traffic delays and will strengthen economic activity between the Chicago and Rockford metropolitan regions. The new roadway incorporates the latest ITS technologies in support of active traffic management and integrated transit to make the roadway safer and more efficient for Tollway customers

Please come join us to learn more about this exciting project, and to network with our friends with ISPE, Rockford. ITE and ISPE are honored to host Mr. Peter Foernssler from the Illinois Tollway as the event speaker.

Mr. Foernssler has been the Contract Manager of the Tollway Program Management Office (PMO) since 2008 overseeing the $5.8 billion Congestion Relief Program (2008 - 2016) and the $12.1 billion Move Illinois Capital Program (2012 - 2026).  Included in this latest program is the I-90 reconstruction and widening, the new interchange at I-57/I-294, the completion of the Elgin/O'Hare Western Access expressway to O'Hare Airport as well as various system wide improvements. Pete is a professional engineer in the state of Illinois and has Bachelor and Master of Science degrees in Civil Engineering from the University of Illinois at Urbana-Champaign.
