Please join us for the Legislative Drive Down on March 5th.

ASCE Illinois Section has been a part of the TFIC for nearly 15 years and has been a great partnership. We will have our 2022 Illinois Infrastructure Report Card on-hand to help inform our legislators about the status of our Illinois Infrastructure, which has been used by TFIC in their legislative outreach.  The Transportation for Illinois Coalition unites stakeholders from business, labor, and local governments to educate policymakers and the public about the need for adequate investment in Illinois' transportation infrastructure. The TFIC is the recognized authority on and unifying voice for transportation needs in Illinois. TFIC exists to achieve the best transportation systems in order to guarantee economic success. This includes and touches many aspects of the transportation network from roads/highways, bridges, airports, shipping/trucking, intermodal, rail, and agricultural needs.
