  • Meeting one-on-one with local communities, residents and businesses
  • Networking with representatives of small diverse and veteran-owned firms
  • Hosting workshops to help businesses of all sizes and types work with the Tollway

Current planning and community outreach efforts are focused on the Illinois Tollway's Elgin O'Hare Western Access Project and the Central Tri-State Tollway (I-294) Corridor.
