Crumbling roads and bridges. Slow, crowded transit lines.
We all pay a steep price for the poor state of Illinois’ roads, rails and bridges. From missed appointments to higher delivery costs, our failure to invest in our transportation network is more than a frustration: It’s a drag on our economy and our everyday lives.
For Andrea B. in Peoria, it's $800 for pothole damage to her car. For Sara D. in Chicago, it's the unpredictability of her sometimes fast, sometimes “slow as molasses” train ride. For Aldwin J. of Naperville—and countless others—it simply takes longer than it should to get from point A to point B.
It's time to make the case to Springfield.
Join Accelerate Illinois today and tell the governor and lawmakers we need to pay more attention to the roads, bridges and transit systems that get us to work, home and play every day.
