Rest and Refuel at a Tollway Oasis
They're On Your Way, Every Day.
Whether you are a daily commuter or a long-distance traveler, the Illinois Tollway oases are a perfect stop on the way to your destination. The oases are located along the system and provide a variety of services and food options.
Our six oases facilities have been designated as Safe Phone Zones, sponsored by Verizon Wireless, as part of a nationwide effort to reduce distracted driving by encouraging drivers to pull into safe, convenient locations to use their cellphones for calling, texting and accessing mobile apps.
