Planners hope federal funding will help ease local freight gridlock
from Daily Herald
After years of short-term extensions, Congress is talking about a multiyear transportation funding bill that could help the Chicago region untie its freight gridlock, planners hope. The Senate's environment and public works committee this week passed a six-year $257.5 billion proposal, totaling about $43 billion a year. Under the Senate plan, Illinois could see about $100 million more in 2016, Chicago Metropolitan Agency for Planning officials said.
