On Illinois Tollway Board’s approval of Open Road Tolling long-range plan

CHICAGO – “I want to congratulate the Tollway Board for approving a plan today that will reduce commute times by as much as 15 minutes on each trip, create 252,00 jobs, help the environment, fix and widen our roads, build I-355, and make Illinois the first state in the nation to convert its entire system to Open Road Tolling. 
“I also want to thank everyone who participated in the public hearings over the past month.  What started as a great proposal was made even better because of the valuable input we received from individuals and groups who rely on the Tollway system.  
“Starting in January when we break ground on the new Open Roads system, we will create a Tollway system for the 21st century, so that commuters driving to and from work, truckers making deliveries, and even vacationers traveling in Illinois can get where they're going faster and easier.”
