Congestion Management

The Congestion Management Process

The purpose of the Congestion Management Process (CMP) is to identify congested locations; determine the causes of congestion; develop alternative strategies to mitigate congestion; evaluate the different potential mitigation strategies; propose alternative strategies that best address the causes and impacts of congestion; and track and evaluate the impact of previously implemented congestion management strategies. The CMP is intended to be an integral part of the metropolitan planning process, rather than a stand-alone process or system.
