Research Program Design---Administration of Highway and Transportation Agencies. Partnership Approaches to Identify, Promote, and Implement Congestion Management Strategies

Traffic congestion may be a by-product of a growing population and thriving economy. If current trends continue, we can expect that the extent and duration of congestion will increase and affect more communities. States and metropolitan communities must have the resources and flexibility to consider, implement and manage a portfolio of cost-effective investment strategies to deliver enhanced the system performance, reliability, and redundancy for a growing economy and population. The objective of this research is to develop a succinct review of current knowledge and thinking about the relationship among transportation congestion, economic activity, economic growth, and transportation system investment at regional and national levels, and about strategies for reducing congestion, that can be posed as models for wide adoption in metropolitan areas.
