Proposed Rule on Freight Performance Measures
The U.S. Department of Transportation’s Federal Highway Administration has published a rulemaking that proposes new performance measures to assess system performance, freight movement, and the CMAQ program. The proposed regulation calls for an increased level of transparency and accountability in establishing and achieving targets for performance impacting commuters and truck drivers.

The FHWA Office of Freight Management and Operations and other stakeholders are developing performance measures for freight transportation. Freight-specific performance measures help to identify needed transportation improvements and monitor their effectiveness. They also serve as indicators of economic health and traffic congestion.
FHWA has acquired a second (v2) national data set of average travel times on the National Highway System for use in its performance measures and management activities. This data set is also available to State Departments of Transportation and Metropolitan Planning Organizations to use for their performance management activities. The data set will be available monthly.
