A reminder that the CMAP Board will not meet in August. Its next scheduled meeting is at 9:30 a.m. on Wednesday, September 12.
E-commerce and traffic congestion
On Thursday, NPR’s All Things Considered featured a story on traffic congestion resulting from increased online shopping and delivery. CMAP’s Liz Schuh and Elizabeth Irvin were interviewed about the effects delivery-related congestion, particularly the increased amount of trucks, is having on local communities. CMAP has completed one project to improve truck routing around O’Hare Airport and plans to do similar projects as part of the implementation of ON TO 2050.
