Key Facts:

Adding capacity alone will not be enough as growth will continually outpace the amount of roadway expansion that can be funded and built. Thus, there is no practical way the region can build its way out of congestion.


The Center for Neighborhood Technology has shown what many have ignored for decades: that "cheaper" housing found on the fringes is actually less affordable when associated transportation costs are factored in because of longer travel distances to jobs and services and less available public transportation. This brings to light the importance of developing neighborhoods that are location efficient, meaning that people can efficiently get to the places they need because of good proximity to services and access to transit.
