Mobility Case Studies: Where Integrated Corridor Management Has Worked and Why

Mobility management and improvement have become the focal point of the federal, state, and local transportation agencies over the last decade. Even with decreasing vehicle-miles-traveled (VMT) over the same time span, the congestion and delays have not improved leading to a renewed focus on multimodal solutions at all levels. While multimodalism has been part of the transportation vocabulary for a long time, and has been aided by legislation to some extent, it has not been embraced into practice at a large scale. Advances in technology (autonomous vehicles, ridesharing services, transportation network companies, improved dynamic wayfinding systems, as well as improved infrastructure) are providing the paradigm shift needed to look at mobility management in a renewed light. The Greater Chicagoland Northeastern Illinois region is no different from many of the most congested regions in the country, in the sense that the vehicle hours of delay for both passenger and freight are among the highest in the country on an annual basis. This report focuses on this region while drawing on the experiences from other parts of the country to set the stage for detailing the state of multimodal transportation or integrated transportation system in northeastern Illinois.
