With support from CMAP’s Local Technical Assistance (LTA) program, the Central Council of Mayors is developing a Transportation Resilience Plan. The goal of the plan is to reduce the flood risk of the transportation system in the Central Council of Mayors region. The planning process will include:


  • Assessing the vulnerability of the transportation system to heavy rainfall and flooding;
  • Identifying where flooding and stormwater issues coincide with planned transportation improvements;
  • Outlining capital project types, policy solutions, and areas requiring further study; and
  • Informing stormwater and transportation investment decisions made by Central Council communities as well as other stormwater and transportation agencies.

We want to hear from you!

Public input is crucial to develop a plan that is driven by the needs and vision of Central Council communities. Opportunities to tell us what you think will be added to the site as we move through the planning process. Click below to learn more about the project, tell us where it floods, and take a survey on how flooding affects you.

  • Project Background

    Share on Facebook Share on Twitter Share on Linkedin Email this link

    The Central Council of Mayors, which compromises 15 communities in west Cook County, is conducting a study to address flooding and stormwater impacts on the transportation system. With support from the Chicago Metropolitan Agency for Planning (CMAP), the Central Council will build upon their transportation plan by identifying priority flood improvement areas and where these needs coincide with planned transportation projects. Coordinating stormwater and transportation improvements will allow the Central Council communities to invest capital funds in a resilient, efficient, and cost-effective way.

    The project team will first conduct a broad assessment of the transportation system in the Central Council region, including roads, bridges, transit, and freight, and a detailed examination of the project locations outlined in the existing transportation plan. Then, the team will outline capital project types, policy solutions, and areas requiring further study. The result of this process will be a transportation resilience plan that identifies flood vulnerabilities and potential projects to increase the resiliency of the transportation system in the Central Council region.
