Events of recent years have brought about significant changes in the scope and scale of transportation planning in the Chicago region. These are most apparent in the change from four functionally defined planning regions to one six county region in Illinois and the inclusion of freight and aviation facilities as major elements of the transportation plan. While less evident, the importance of long range capital programming must also be acknowledged as part of the planning process. The purpose of this report is to coordinate and consolidate transportation planning and to set the stage for planning activities during the year and years to follow. The plan is a composite of existing plans and relevant issues in the region.
