I-90 Corridor Planning Council
The I-90 Corridor Planning Council has completed an assessment on how to combine the reconstruction of the Tollway's portion of I-90 with plans to reduce congestion and increase environmentally sound transportation options throughout the corridor, including express bus lanes and congestion pricing.
The Council's Findings and Recommendations document includes a series of recommendations to create a state-of-the-art corridor that will better connect the Rockford and Chicago metropolitan areas. The Council's Resolution supports the implementation of managed lanes on the Jane Addams Memorial Tollway.
Co-chaired by the Rockford Metropolitan Agency for Planning and the Chicago Metropolitan Agency for Planning, the I-90 Corridor Planning Council also included representatives from:
- The Illinois Department of Transportation
- Regional transit and transportation planning agencies
- Local business and environmental groups
- Five county boards along the I-90 corridor
