Stovepipe diagram shows each process involved in development of the CMS. Each step is presented in order and feeds into the next step.
System Analysis / System Determination – Identify System (mode & networks) for consideration.
Congestion Performance Measures – Identify congested corridors and isolated locations or congestion based on established performance measures:
Strategy Evaluation – Determine mitigation measures that apply to each corridor. Evaluate congestion mitigation strategies in priority order:
Note that this element feeds back into the system analysis/system determination step above.
WILMAPCO Regional Transportation Plan (RTP) Project Pipeline/Needs Inventory – Projects from strategy evaluation submitted to State DOT project pipelines for consideration and addition to the WILMAPCO RTP Aspirations List.
Project & Problem Prioritization – Aspirations projects from the RTP are put through the WILMAPCO prioritization process for inclusion in the 4-year Transportation Improvement Program (TIP) and the statewide Capital Transportation Plans (CTP). Implementing agencies also conduct other prioritization and analysis of projects.
System Monitoring / Project Effectiveness – Track regional congestion trends and effectiveness of implemented projects based on performance measures.
