Regional transportation system monitoring and performance

Planning and conservation    Regional planning and policy    MPO for the Portland region    Regional transportation system monitoring and performance

Learn how the region evaluates and monitors the performance of the transportation system.

Congestion Management Process

MPOs are required to create a Congestion Management Process, a systematic way of managing traffic congestion that provides information on system performance and strategies to alleviate congestion and enhance the mobility of persons and goods. These multimodal strategies include operational improvements such as traffic signal timing, travel demand management such as marketing of active transportation options, new policy approaches and additional system capacity.Download
