STUDY OF A GROUND ACCESS SYSTEM FOR O'HARE INTERNATIONAL AIRPORT. PHASE II REPORT: EVALUATION OF CBD-O'HARE ALTERNATIVES

With the prospect of passenger enplanements increasing by over 50 percent by 1985, the City of Chicago recognized the need for conducting a comprehensive study of O'Hare's ground access system and retained Alan A. Voorhees & Associates, Inc. to prepare a regional access plan. The studies and analyses to be performed by AMV as part of the access plan development have been divided into three phases. This report presents and describes the work completed in Phase II of the study. Although Phase II, as originally conceived, was to produce a long-range access plan, regional in scope, it became clear during the course of the Phase II studies that an O'Hare-CBD access system would be the foundation and most significant element of the regional access system. Accordingly, AMV's efforts in Phase II focused on studies which would facilitate the selection of such a system, and this report presents the results of those studies exclusively. /GMRL/
