HNTB Corp. will serve the Illinois Tollway, a 274-mile system comprised of I-355, I-294/94, I-90 and I-88 serving Northern Illinois, as program manager for the tollway's $5.3 billion congestion relief plan--Open Roads for a Faster Future. The plan calls for modernizing and rebuilding the 45-year-old roads to create a more efficient transportation system for its customers.

The services that the HNTB team will provide are critical to delivering the Illinois Tollway's capital improvements plan to reduce congestion and travel times by rebuilding and restoring almost the entire tollway system, converting mainline toll plazas to open-road tolling, adding lanes to the system's major roads and building the long-anticipated south extension of I-355.

The 10-year congestion relief plan is expected to create 252,000 new jobs in the region and provide infrastructure for economic development in local communities.
