Remote weather stations play a critical role in IDOT's Roadway Weather Information System. They provide essential road condition data to the public for safe travel and help IDOT maintenance teams with plowing and cleanup efforts.

The RWIS towers, located along roadways, are connected to pavement sensors that measure important data like temperature, humidity, precipitation, and road conditions.

IDOT collects the weather information from 53 RWIS locations throughout the state. This information is uploaded to sites like gettingaroundillinois.com and travelmidwest.com for the public and helps the department prepare for and respond to winter storms. Read more here: https://idot.click/2r8.

Exciting news! ✈️ The airport terminal program has awarded funding to three Illinois airports - St. Louis Downtown Airport (KCPS), Chicago O'Hare International Airport, and Crawford County IL Airport-RSV. This funding is a much-needed win for the Crawford County Airport, which suffered severe damage due to a tornado in March 2023.

The grant will play a crucial role in rebuilding the airport terminal, fulfilling the airport's modernization requirements, and enhancing the passenger experience. More here: https://idot.click/egv

We're building safer airports and improving your travel experience across the US with the Bipartisan Infrastructure Law. The nearly $1B in awards to more than 100 airports will fund bigger security checkpoints, new baggage systems and modernized terminals that benefit passengers.

“These investments we’re announcing today, made possible by President Biden’s historic infrastructure package, will make it easier for passengers to get to and through airports, create jobs and increase safety for all.”– U.S. Transportation Secretary Pete Buttigieg.
