Incorporating Travel-Time Reliability into the Congestion Management Process (CMP): A Primer
Appendix: Congestion Management Process Refresher
Readers unfamiliar with the Congestion Management Process (CMP) should consult the Federal Highway Administration (FHWA) report, Congestion Management Process: A Guidebook . This appendix provides a very brief overview of the CMP and FHWA's Planning for Operations program so that readers may see how the guidance in this primer fits within the overall CMP.
Planning for Operations is also a systematic process to help planning agencies, such as MPOs, engage in mutually beneficial activities with operations staff from other agencies or departments. Engaging operations staff drawn from a wide variety of sources, such as departments of transportation (DOTs) and transit operators, assists the CMP by providing an expanded toolbox of management and operations strategies.
