Commuter Corridors Study


Background  Map of Study area 

As the commuter corridors across the CAMPO region become more congested with increasing growth in traffic, the Commuter Corridors Study is exploring, in detail, the anticipated volumes on major corridors across the region. There are also plans for major investments in the transit network that may help to mitigate some of the anticipated growth in traffic. This study consists of a technical analysis of some of the region’s major commuter corridors to identify what cross-sections are ultimately needed to serve anticipated volumes through 2050. By looking at different hypothetical scenarios, this study will help inform which projects to prioritize, and during which decade, during the development of the 2050 Metropolitan Transportation Plan. Scenarios range from the expansion of highways, additional tolled roadway facilities, to an increase in telecommuting and mobile workers.

Timeline

The Study began in 2018 and will be complete by the fall of 2019. The final report will be submitted to the Executive Board, as well as posted on this webpage.
