The Borman Expressway Project (2789 words)
The Borman Expressway in Lake Co., Indiana is considered as a case study (test-bed) for this project.
Since the Borman Expressway is a major expressway traveling east and west and the city of Chicago is to the west of the sampling location, traffic in the westbound direction will naturally continue to increase in volume.
The earlier phases of this project found that the Borman Expressway supplied on average 77% of the CO and 72% of the PM as determined by modeling and regression analysis of traffic and environment data (SPR-2338).
