Eisenhower Transportation Corridor
EISENHOWER EXPESSWAY AND CTA BLUE LINE
Diverting motorists to the Blue Line will reduce expressway crashes and congestion.
In most years, there are no accidents on the CTA rail system and about 2,500 crashes on the section of the Eisenhower Expressway under study. Reducing the number of vehicles on the expressway during peak periods by any means (diverting to transit, staggered work hours, telecommuting) will reduce congestion.
