In January 2005, the Illinois Tollway selected ETC to implement the reciprocity (interoperability) program between its I-PASS system and the Interagency Advisory Group (IAG). Then in March 2005, Illinois Tollway awarded ETC the contract to implement and maintain a new toll collection system.
Illinois Tollway’s program highlights include the following:
- End-to-end replacement of entire toll collection system from the roadside to the back office
- IAG interoperability
- Nine mainline toll plazas converted to full All Electronic Tolling (AET) in less than eight months
- A total of 24 toll plaza conversions to AET (entire mainline plaza system), 52 ramp plazas, for a total of 2132 toll lane miles
- Upgrade and retrofit all lanes in system
