The Illinois Tollway has formed a "Tollway Transition Team," which includes members from business, transit agencies, and non-profits to provide advice to the Tollway for its future planning.
"With this team we"ll work to refocus on the customer and the communities that we serve," said Illinois Tollway Executive Director Kristi Lafleur.
The team will work with Lafleur, the newly appointed head of the Tollway, and staff to create a report framing a direction for the agency over the next year and beyond, according to the Tollway.
The team, which will work without pay, will be headed by Dave Mosena, CEO of the Museum of Science and Industry and former city aviation commissioner.
Other members include Jacky Grimshaw, CTA board member and VP of policy at the Center for Neighborhood Technology; RTA Chair Jim Reilly; Illinois Chamber of Commerce CEO Doug Whitley; and Howard Learner, head of the Environmental Law and Policy Center.
At the time of her appointment earlier last month, Lafleur said she expects the Tollway in the future will be exploring the use of high occupancy vehicle and bus rapid transit lanes to reduce congestion.
