Metropolitan Planning Technical Report: Congestion Management Case Studies

This is the eighth in a periodic series of reports issued by the Metropolitan Planning Division, Federal Highway Administration. Included in this issue are two synthesis reports of recent research in the area of transportation planning, specifically with regard to congestion management. The first report, "Developing Effective Congestion Management Systems," chronicles the early development and implementation experiences of four metropolitan areas: Albany, NY; Dallas / Ft. Worth, TX; Seattle, WA; and Washington, DC. Each case study is examined with respect to select technical and institutional elements of its practice. The second report, "Data Collection and Analysis Methods to Support Congestion Management Systems," was presented at a TRB conference. The paper summarizes performance measures and analytical methods. It also describes congestion management system (CMS)-related works in three case study areas: Montana's experience using Highway Performance Monitoring System (HPMS) as a CMS resource; Albuquerque's Geographic Information System (GIS) applications; and Boston's integration of data for multimodal improvements in the downtown.
