STRATEGIC MOTOR FREIGHT PLANNING FOR CHICAGO IN THE YEAR 2000 (ABRIDGMENT)

The major components of a motor freight planning model that was recently developed to help the Chicago Area Transportation Study evaluate alternative year-2000 physical planning policies are described. The current model allows the planner to evaluate alternative terminal clustering and primary truck route designation plans, both as they affect terminal accessibility to service demands, and as the greater separation of person and goods traffic movements affects highway volumes, speeds, fuel use, and emissions.
