Illinois highways

A recent update to the Illinois Department of Transportation website aims to make winter road condition information more convenient and accessible for drivers.

A redesign of the “Getting Around Illinois” website features more detailed reports on snow coverage, as well as the ability to zoom in to a specific location or travel route.

The redesign also introduces a new color scheme to match seamlessly with those from surrounding states.

Trucks will be able to go the same speed as cars on urban interstate highways, now that the General Assembly has nixed a veto by Governor Pat Quinn.
