Frequently Asked Questions
The Dashboard is a user-friendly, Web-based, project management
tool that provides current information on construction project status. It is
used to keep IDOT's transportation program on time and on budget. Project
managers are able to see in an instant which jobs are at risk of falling behind
schedule or going over budget. Their job is to get those projects back on track.
What contracts are included in the Dashboard?
This site contains construction projects that are managed by the Department's ICORS (Illinois Construction Records System) application and include the active Annual Program projects and the ARRA Stimulus projects. The site does not include Maintenance Contracts, Engineering contracts, Locally Let Design or Construction projects, Aeronautics, or Railroad projects.
Why is it called the Dashboard?
It's called the Dashboard
because, just as a car dashboard keeps a driver informed of
performance, IDOT's Dashboard keeps project managers tuned in on
the performance of their construction projects.
What can I view on the Dashboard?
The Dashboard provides a way to view information about
most, but not all, of IDOT's active construction projects. Local
Agency projects are not included.
Why would a project be behind schedule?
There are various reasons which could include; conflicts
with the location of utilities (gas, water electric or telephone
lines), delays or inability to procure critical materials,
weather or strikes.
