A FOUR-PHASE PROCESS LEADING TO COMPUTER-ASSISTED ROUTE SELECTION IS DESCRIBED. THE FIRST PHASE, DATA BANK DEVELOPMENT, ENTAILED COMPILATION OF A VARIABLE DATA SET. IN THE SECOND PHASSE A SET OF NINE CORRIDOR DETERMINANTS WAS DEFINED, RANGING FROM ENGINEERING TO LAND USE. IN THE THIRD PHASE, CORRIDOR ALTERNATIVE ANALYSIS, WEIGHTED MATRICES WERE USED TO DETERMINE FACTORS WITH THE GREATEST EFFECT. IN THE FINAL PHASE OF CORRIDOR SELECTION, ALTERNATIVE SUBCORRIDORS WERE IDENTIFIED AND PRESENTED AT PUBLIC HEARINGS IN THEIR RELATION TO A COMMON CORRIDOR. ANALYSES ARE NOW IN PROGRESS FOR ADDITIONAL HEARINGS ON LOCATION OF THE TWO-MILE-WIDE CORRIDOR BETWEEN MILWAUKEE AND GREEN BAY, WISCONSIN.
