Synthesis of Information Related to Highway Practices. Topic 54-08. Practices for Integrating Performance-Based Plans with Long-Range Transportation Plans and Statewide Transportation Investment Programs

The Moving Ahead for Progress in the 21st Century Act (MAP-21), the Fixing America's Surface Transportation (FAST) Act, significantly expanded planning and performance management requirements for state departments of transportation (DOTs). Specifically, DOTs must prepare Strategic Highway Safety Plans (SHSPs), Highway Safety Improvement Programs (HSIPs), Transportation Asset Management Plans (TAMPs), and state freight plans. DOTs must integrate the goals, objectives, performance measures, and targets described in their performance-based plans into long-range transportation plans (LRTPs) and statewide transportation investment programs (STIPs). However, each state DOT has a unique structure and processes to meet federal and state requirements. There has been limited documentation of DOT practices to integrate performance-based planning requirements and outcomes into LRTPs and STIPs. The objective of this synthesis is to document state DOT current practices related to integrating required performance-based plans (SHSP, HSIP, TAMP, and freight plans) with LRTPs and STIPs.
