For many families, summer means vacations and road trips. As tourists travel across the Interstates of Illinois, they may see new signs marking options for alternative fueling.
According to the Illinois Department of Transportation (IDOT), the agency has placed 30 signs along federally designated “Alternative Fuels Corridors,” which include Illinois Interstates 39, 55, 70, 74, 80, 90, and 94. Twenty more signs are scheduled to go up yet during the summer.
The first signs going up denote electric charging stations, but IDOT plans to eventually place signs marking locations for compressed natural gas (CNG), liquefied natural gas (LNG), hydrogen, and propane (LP) fueling stations.
