Illinois Tollway Kicks Off 2022 With a Look Back, and Ahead for ACEC Members


The beginning of the new year was a chance for the Illinois Tollway to not only share future priorities, but also recognize the contributions of Illinois’ engineering community towards the progress made across the region on the Tollway system.  

Illinois Tollway Executive Director José Alvarez met this week with members of the American Council of Engineering Companies of Illinois at the ACEC Illinois Regional Luncheon for the first opportunity of 2022 to connect with engineers from throughout Northern Illinois.  There he laid out the Tollway’s coming year with regard to professional services, while highlighting the collaboration that’s led to significant progress as the 15-year, $14 billion Move Illinois Program enters its 11th year. 

The Tollway relies upon professional engineering services firms to provide their knowledge and expertise in the planning, design and management of capital improvement projects. The Tollway is counting on the engineering community to continue its great work to keep Move Illinois on track and at the forefront of the tolling and transportation industry in the years ahead.
