State Department of Transportation Information
On Jan. 1, 1972, by an Act of the 77th General Assembly, Illinois became the 14th state to establish a Department of Transportation. This department assumed the responsibilities of the Department of Public Works and Buildings and the Office of Mass Transportation from the Department of Local Government Affairs. Also included in the new Illinois Department of Transportation (IDOT) were the safety inspection functions administered by the State Police, Secretary of State, Illinois Commerce Commission and the Superintendent of Public Instruction. On Aug. 30, 1973, Aeronautics became a division within IDOT. In July 1995, the Division of Water Resources, originally a part of IDOT, was transferred to the newly formed Department of Natural Resources.

Because IDOT was created to meet the multi-modal transportation needs of our state, it was Illinois’ first agency to be headed by a “Secretary.” IDOT is responsible for building and maintaining the state’s highways, supporting air, rail and public transportation projects, and encouraging traffic safety so that the avenues of commerce and travel remain open and accessible to all of Illinois.
