The Illinois Tollway is a user-fee system and receives no state or federal funds for maintenance and operations, so tolls are necessary to cover the cost of:
• Services: Illinois State Police, H.E.L.P. Truck program, I-PASS customer service
• Maintenance: snow plowing, road maintenance
• Construction: reconstruction of the Tollway system and any new roads
The Illinois Tollway operates and maintains 292 miles of interstate tollways in 12 counties in Northern Illinois.
