Congestion is a problem that increases every year. It negatively impacts safety and air quality and has serious societal and economic consequences.
Our roadways, harbors, and airports are more crowded than ever, and corresponding wear and tear on transportation systems is evident. Even positive actions of repairing and improving our infrastructure further exacerbate traffic backups and delays.
Congestion and air quality are undeniably linked. Reducing travel delays, engine idle time, and unproductive fuel consumption will reduce greenhouse gases and particulates in the air.
Embracing the goals set forth in the U.S. Department of Transportation Strategic Plan, CAIT is examining ways to alleviate congestion throughout our roadways and waterways.
