Overview

MAP-21 established and the FAST Act reinforced the requirement for national performance measures to be used in monitoring the performance of the US transportation system. MPOs and State DOTs were also directed to establish targets corresponding to the new measures and monitoring performance of their systems. This session will explore how MPOs and State DOTs have gone about establishing those targets and monitoring performance and how they have integrated these tasks into their planning and programming activities. The session will explore whether the requirements have led to a more performance-driven project and program evaluation process. Speakers will address the following questions:
1. What are the MAP 21 and FAST Act requirements and what guidance is available?
2. How have MPOs and State DOTS gone about collecting and reporting the data on performance measures?
3. How have MPOs and State DOTS gone about developing targets for the performance measures and have the new requirements changed how MPOs and State DOTs have gone about planning and programming
Planners from Alliance Transportation Group will moderate the session and address the three session topics based on recent results from projects with State DOTs and MPOs. If available, staff from the State DOTs and MPOs will also participate. JD Allen will moderate the session and address Question #1, Ben Lauritzen will address Question # 2 and Jonathan Mosteiro will address Question #3. Peggy Thurin of TxDOT will provide a State DOT perspective on meeting the performance measure requirements.

Learning Objectives:
1. To clearly identify the current federal requirements for monitoring the national transportation performance measures and for setting targets.
2. To identify sources of data for the national transportation performance measures that can be used by State DOTs and MPOS
3. To identify best practices by State DOTs and MPOs in setting targets for and monitoring the national transportation performance measuresand how they have integrated these tasks into their planning and programming activities.
