CMAQ: Advancing Mobility and Air Quality

While the primary goal of the Congestion Mitigation Air Quality Improvement (CMAQ) program is to clean the air, may of the efforts supported by CMAQ contribute directly to the Nation's mobility goals. Projects that improve air quality through better traffic flow, enhanced transit services, provision of other modes of travel, or more choices for shippers also provide substantial benefits to the transportation system. Such improvements are often overlooked as the congestion piece of the CMAQ program is viewed as a goal secondary to air quality. This report provides some examples of mobility enhancements attributed to CMAQ.
