Tribute to Illinois’ 102 Counties: We Reap What We Sow: Kirk Brown

Transportation Leaders’ Updates & Perspectives: The Federal View: David Kim

Welcome to the Official Homepage of the Illinois Transportation and Highway Engineering (T.H.E.) Conference. Each year, hundreds of transportation engineers, officials, technicians, faculty and students gather to discuss issues critical to the safe and economical movement of people and goods across Illinois, the U.S.A., and beyond.

The 103rd T.H.E. conference will take place February 28-March 1 with pre-conference activities offered on the 27th. Please contact Megan Everette at to learn about sponsorship and exhibit opportunities for this annual event.

On behalf of the T.H.E. Program Committee, we look forward to seeing you in Urbana for the 103rd Annual Conference!

Dan Work
T.H.E. Conference Director


A message from Bill Buttlar:

It has been my honor and pleasure to serve as the Director of the THE Conference for the past fifteen years.  Working alongside colleagues such as you has made the burden light and the rewards many!  Effective May 16th, I will be assuming the Glen Barton Chair in Flexible Pavements at Mizzou.  However, I look forward to our continued collaborations as I transition my THE role to Program Committee/Past Director.


There will be special events planned so check back frequently. Like us on Facebook, or follow us on Twitter for updates!
