In 2017, the Illinois Department of Transportation, The Illinois Tollway and CMAP collaborated to develop a future vision of the Chicagoland expressway system.  The goal was to provide a framework for which future expressway projects could be based to meet the demands of the ever changing transporation landscape of the 21st century.  Future strategies and technologies such as Advance Traffic Management, multi-purpose lanes, congestion pricing, alternate modes of transportation, connected vehicles, advanced ITS, capacity improvement alternatives and others were considered.  Please come join us to learn more about this exciting subject.
ITE is honored to host Mr. Tom Murtha from CMAP as the event speaker.  Representatives from both IDOT and the Tollway will be in attendence to answer questions and participate in discussion.
