Move Illinois Program
The Illinois State Toll Highway Authority adopted the 15-year, $12 billion capital program, Move Illinois. This significant highway construction program includes the installation of cutting-edge energy efficient lighting and various smart highway systems. These contracts, most frequently found along I-90 and the Elgin-O’Hare Western Access Corridor, represent the installation of over 1,000 LED energy efficient highway lights. Other work scopes within the program included Intelligent Transportation (ITS), Dynamic Messaging (DTS), Microwave Vehicle Detection (MVDS), and Roadway Weather Information (RWIS) Systems; Active Traffic Management (ATM); an upgraded and expanded camera system and traffic sensors. In addition, fiber optic cable has been laid down to allow future technology implementation.
