Research Program Design---Administration of Highway and Transportation Agencies. Measuring Performance among State DOTs: Sharing Good Practices -- Congestion

NCHRP Project 20-24(37) activities are undertaken generally to support development of a commonly accepted set of measures state departments of transportation (DOTs) would use to assess system and agency performance; a single common data standard for each measure; a simple and reliable data submission process; and a basis for identifying, validating, and sharing best management practices that support high performance. Studies of specific aspects of performance entail comparison of data provided by several states and documentation of practices underlying best performance among participating states. The objectives of this project will be to (a) review and assess specific measures useful to department's of transportation (DOTs) for management of highway congestion, (b) demonstrate how DOT data for a small number of such measures may be used to supplement data available through the Federal Highway Administration (FHWA) to conduct a comparative analysis of DOT performance regarding congestion management, (c) report on successful data- and system-management techniques employed by exemplary agencies, and (d) design a program for establishing a data base that can be used as a resource for other American Association of State Highway & Transportation Officials (AASHTO) and National Cooperative highway Research Program (NCHRP) performance measurement and management activities. The research shall consider FHWA's continuing efforts to characterize congestion on segments of the National Highway System and activities by INRIX or other private-sector data sources.
