Commentary on Chicago Area Road Construction and Impact on Motorists

Traffic congestion brought on by road construction and reopening

In early May, Chicago area media spoke with UTC Director Dr. P.S. Sriraj on an emerging challenge facing motorists across metropolitan Chicago: Traffic congestion brought on by ongoing and new road construction projects, coupled with the reopening of cultural, sporting, entertainment and other venues.

In the Sunday May 9 issue of theĀ Chicago Tribune, Dr. Sriraj offered thoughts in a page one article written by reporter Robert McCoppin.
