The Regional Transportation Authority (RTA) is studying a new transportation proposal in the western suburbs that would greatly expand commute options. After two years of developing the Cook-Dupage Corridor concept plans, a committee of elected county and municipal officials recently approved a scenario of eight transportation improvements to advance for more detailed analysis. The recommended improvements are designed to help increase mobility in the heavily congested Cook-DuPage Corridor. The committee also laid out a set of actions and policies to define the next steps.
