Congestion Management

The MPO's Congestion Management Process sets forth planning objectives to effectively improve transportation system capacity while managing traffic congestion into the future. The CMP offers tools and methods for tracking transportation-system data such as travel times and traffic counts, and most importantly, offers a set of multi-modal solutions for addressing the growing problem of traffic congestion in our region.
