ABSTRACT
The article informs that with increasing congestion in and around Chicago, freight trains now creep through our region at an average 9 mph. Meanwhile, the average motorist suffers a cumulative annual delay of 56 hours on area roads, up from 16 hours in the early 1980s. Those are the findings of a recent study by Chicago Metropolis 2020 that concludes, that the Chicago region's role as a national freight transportation center is threatened because the rapidly growing volume of freight is on a collision course with traffic congestion and inefficient infrastructure.
