Announcement of $34.6 Billion Investment in Illinois' Transportation System

Governor Pritzker joined the Illinois Department of Transportation (IDOT) in announcing a $34.6 billion program to improve roads, bridges, transit, rail, airports, and ports over the next six years. This funding represents a robust commitment to invest in people and communities backed by the historic Rebuild Illinois capital program.

IDOT's new Multi-Year Program for the next six years includes $20 billion going towards transportation investments, including 2,500 miles of roads and nearly 10 million square feet of bridge deck, and $10 billion going towards the state's rail and transit systems, airports, and ports. 

Of the major elements in the program released on August 12, 2022, $6.36 billion will go toward highway reconstruction and preservation, $6.4 billion for bridge improvements, $2.03 billion for strategic expansion, $2.48 billion for system support such as engineering and land acquisition, and $1.55 billion for safety and system modernizations.

In addition to the six-year program for roads and bridges, Governor Pritzker also released the FY2023-28 Proposed Multimodal Multi-Year Improvement Program further demonstrating the commitment through Rebuild Illinois to build connections across the modes of transportation and strengthen the state's entire transportation network, resulting in even more economic activity and job creation.
