2023 State Freight Plan

The Illinois 2023 State Freight Plan was developed in accordance with federal guidelines for state freight plans as outlined in the Infrastructure Investment and Jobs Act (IIJA). Illinois is a vibrant and thriving hub for freight, with 147,000 miles of roadway, over 10,000 miles of railroad tracks, 1,118 miles of navigable waterways, and numerous airports, pipeline, and other facilities carrying goods across the State. In 2019, about 1.6 billion tons ($2.5 trillion dollars) of freight flowed into, out of, and through Illinois. According to the FHWA, Illinois is the third busiest freight state when measured by value, and fourth when measured by tonnage.
