The Illinois Tollway's $12 billion capital program, Move Illinois: The Illinois Tollway Driving the Future, will improve mobility, relieve congestion, reduce pollution, create as many as 120,000 jobs and link economies across the Midwest region. Move Illinois will address the remaining needs of the existing Tollway system; rebuild and widen the Jane Addams Memorial Tollway (I-90) as a state-of-the-art 21st century corridor; construct a new interchange to connect the Tri-State Tollway (I-294) to I-57; build a new, all-electronic Elgin O'Hare Western Access and fund planning studies for the Illinois Route 53 Extension and the Illiana Expressway.
In 2005, the Illinois Tollway launched a $5.8 billion Congestion-Relief Program - Open Roads for a Faster Future.
This program has:
- Reduced travel times by converting the system to open road tolling
- Completed construction of the long-awaited south extension of I-355 into Will County
- Rebuilt and restored the majority of the system
- Added lanes to reduce congestion
