The Illinois Tollway Board of Directors this week approved 10 construction and eight professional engineering services contracts totaling nearly $270.3 million at its March board meeting.

Nearly $375 million in contracts has been approved by the Tollway Board in 2020, as part of the ninth year of the Tollway’s 15-year, $14 billion Move Illinois capital program.

“As Illinois works to navigate the challenges facing our nation’s economy, our agency is continuing our important work to deliver the Move Illinois capital program,” Illinois Tollway Executive Director José Alvarez said in a statement. “A critical goal within this is to increase the involvement of talented diverse firms, including women-owned businesses, and this month’s contract awards demonstrate success.”

Of the 18 new construction and engineering contracts included on the Tollway’s March agenda, three were awarded to women-owned prime firms, with an additional 27 women-owned firms participating as subcontractors and sub-consultants.

The contracts approved include six primes and 79 sub-consultants that are certified as disadvantaged, minority-and women-owned business enterprise (D/M/WBE) firms and 13 sub-consultants that are certified veteran-owned firms

Some of the March construction contracts awarded include:

  • An $83.4 million contract to Judlau Contracting Inc. in Lisle for construction on the Jane Addams Memorial Tollway (I-90) between Higgins Creek and Mount Prospect Road for the new I-490/I-90 Interchange.
  • A $48.2 million contract to Curran Contracting Co. in Crystal Lake for advance earthwork, drainage, and retaining wall construction for the new I-490 Tollway between Devon Avenue and Touhy Avenue.
  • A $41.3 million contract to Lorig Construction Co. in Des Plaines for reconstruction of the Archer Avenue Bridge over the Tri-State Tollway (I-294).
