Program Goal

As a technical Assistant to the Illinois Tollway, we provide  comprehensive, customized business development assistance to build financial understanding and business plan development for increased business stability and growth in the transportation-related construction industry. Our services are customized to the assessed strengths, challenges and needs of participating firms. This includes education, guidance and feedback on general business and construction-specific operations, including strategic planning and assistance with the Illinois Department of Transportation (IDOT) pre-qualification application.


Our program features one on one coaching of program participants.  Additionally, we support and encourage collaboration among contractors.


 Applicants who do not qualify for technical assistance will be referred to suitable programs.
