Illinois Tollway Joins International Tolling Industry Discussion on Innovative Approaches to Transportation Infrastructure Funding


A who’s who of transportation and tolling industry experts and professionals – individuals and organizations – came together in Maryland this month to further the common goal of working to move the needle on new solutions for improving roadside and back-office financial systems.

Tollway Executive Director Cassaundra Rouse and staff participated in the International Bridge, Tunnel and Turnpike Association’s Finance and Road Usage Charging Summit and focused squarely on the important issues and funding challenges facing infrastructure project delivery and transportation operations.

The goal of the summit? To delve into substantive discussions on infrastructure project finance alternatives, toll revenue assurance, data analytics applications, risk management and best practices in financial management, as well as breakout sessions on road user charging among other subjects.

With leaders from more than 20 states and six countries, the summit provided an opportunity to learn about and discuss fresh insights into emerging technology trends, implementation challenges, vehicle telematics, institutional integration and strategies for procurement and vendor engagement.
