For the Record

For the Record is an annual report of the awards and obligations made by the Illinois Department of Transportation (IDOT) in the 2018 Annual Illinois Highway Improvement Program. This document meets the requirement for an annual report required by Illinois Statute 20ILCS 2705/2705-200(c), with reference to IDOT’s FY 2018 annual program.

The FY 2018 Proposed Improvements for Illinois Highways is the published annual program showing the projects IDOT planned to implement during the fiscal year. The FY 2018 Annual Highway Improvement Program totaled $2.114 billion, including $1.367 billion for improvements on the state system and $747 million for improvements on local highways. As circumstances arose throughout the fiscal year, modifications were made to the program. After the annual program accounted for these modifications, the program was called the Adjusted Annual Program and totaled $2.851 billion. Of this Adjusted Annual Program, $2.191 billion was awarded during the fiscal year.

A total of 408 miles of roads, 156 bridges and 40 safety and traffic improvements were scheduled to be accomplished in the FY 2018 Annual Highway Improvement Program. In FY 2018, IDOT accomplished 813 miles of roads, 155 bridges and 142 safety and traffic improvements.
