Paving everything doesn't solve problems.

Paving one six lane freeway, particularly one for which a lot of the ROW is already owned would be much easier than paving multiple other roads needing widening or other upgrades in its absence.

IMHO, nearly all of the fault for the hour+ long commutes ('drive to afford') are local zoning laws in those suburbs that effectively prohibit 'live near your work'.  The farthest along in addressing this Chicagoland quandary is the City of Chicago and the truly massive market rate high-rise residential buildings that have been going up throughout their downtown and near-downtown areas for many years now.
