CREATE: The region's #1 freight priority
In a letter
to Crain's Chicago Business, CMAP executive director Joe Szabo states: "The national and regional importance of CREATE
is too important for us to prematurely and preemptively shift the spotlight to other projects like the Great Lakes Basin Transportation proposal." The letter was prompted by recent speculation about projects that would bypass rather than address freight congestion in our region.
