Illinois Tollway Executive Director Liz Gorman and ASCE Transportation & Development Institute Chairman Matt Kirby will have a conversation about the future of technology, collaboration and innovation at the Illinois Tollway, along with an update on the agency’s 15-year, $14 billion Move Illinois capital program.
They will also talk about the Tollway’s efforts to collaborate with other transportation, transit and planning agencies to deliver strategic infrastructure investments that will improve travel and safety throughout the region.
Elizabeth ‘Liz’ Gorman was appointed Executive Director by the Illinois Tollway Board of Directors in February 2018.
Gorman manages the agency’s daily operations, oversees its $1.45 billion budget and leads its nearly 1,500 employees in ensuring the Tollway’s 1.6 million daily drivers travel on a safe, efficient and customer-friendly highway system that incorporates innovative roadway designs and cutting-edge technology.
Before joining the Tollway, Gorman compiled a record of public service that encompassed more than 12 years as a Cook County Commissioner and Forest Preserve District Commissioner, where she emphasized transportation, economic development and public safety issues.
She gained experience in regional and transportation planning while serving as a member of the Northeastern Illinois Planning Commission and most recently provided strategic planning services to PricewaterhouseCoopers while serving as Director of State and Local Government.
