Performance Planning for Rural Planning Organizations

Recent federal rules place increased emphasis on performance-based management of the multimodal transportation system and require the use of performance based methods in state, metropolitan, and non-metropolitan transportation planning and programming. The Fixing America’s Surface Transportation Act and the Moving Ahead for Progress in the 21st Century Act emphasizes seven areas including: safety, infrastructure condition, congestion reduction, system reliability, freight movement and economic vitality, environmental sustainability, and reduced project delivery. Establishing a common set of performance measures allows for the evaluation and comparison of different projects and transportation corridors for both current and future conditions, and translates data and statistics into a form that the public and decision makers can easily understand. This research developed a framework, performance measures, tools, and guidance to conduct performance-based transportation planning and programming in non-metropolitan areas of the state and support Rural Transportation Planning Organizations.
