Support the Tollway Capital Plan!

On July 28th, the Illinois Toll Highway Authority Board unveiled a capital plan that would include nearly $12 billion worth of maintenance on existing roads and constructions of new highways and interchanges.

At the General Membership Meeting, Tollway Executive Director Kristi Lafleur urged Local 150 members to go to hearings across the region and speak in support of the plan, which would create more than 150,000 jobs over the next decade.

This plan includes a proposed tax increase of $0.35 for passenger vehicles, which has drawn public criticism, despite the fact that these tolls have not been raised for 28 years! Without new revenue, these new road projects cannot and will not happen, so we need to go to these meetings and tell our friends and neighbors how important this work is for our transportation and our employment!
