ON TO 2050 Layer: Freight

These are six areas of dense, freight-supportive land uses that will help focus future freight-related research and recommendations.

Truck bottlenecks are defined as locations where trucks experience at least six hours of congestion per weekday, where congestion is defined as truck travel times more than 10% greater than free flow truck travel times. By almost any measure, the Chicago region is the nation’s premier freight hub. Together with CREATE rail corridors, this LSM compiles CMAP's analysis of the highest priority infrastructure projects to maintain that competitive advantage. Transportation agencies can use this LSM to prioritize investments for the greatest regional benefit.
