    • Abstract:
      The Illinois Department of Transportation (IDOT), the Federal Highway Administration (FHWA), the Federal Aviation Administration, and the Illinois State Toll Highway Authority evaluated transportation improvements in the area on the west side of Chicago’s O’Hare International Airport. These agencies jointly served as lead agencies in the evaluation of the proposed Elgin O’Hare-West Bypass (EO-WB) project. The EO-WB project was advanced as a tiered Environmental Impact Statement (EIS) process. The study area of the EO-WB project is shown in figure 1. The action proposed by these agencies was comprised of three elements that include roadway, transit, and bicycle/pedestrian improvements. These improvements respond to the needs of an area that is an important transportation node in the Chicago metropolitan area and is the center of many interstate highways, railroads, and an international airport. The area is further defined by extensive commercial and industrial development in the vicinity of O’Hare Airport. This development is dependent upon reliable travel efficiency and access to maintain and improve the competitive position of the region. Based on the needs of the area, as defined with consideration of existing travel conditions and stakeholder input, the purposes of the proposed project included: Improving regional and local travel; Improving overall travel efficiency; Improving western access to O’Hare Airport; and Improving modal options and connectivity.
