2022 CMP Support Documents

The 2022 CMP update addresses the congestion management needs of the region that have emerged since 2018 and the resulted multimodal system performance measures and strategies are reflected in the 2050 RTP and TIP.

Stakeholders involved in the 2022 CMP update included representatives from traffic, transit, emergency management, and public safety agencies at the local, state, and federal level.


The 2018 CMP, an objectives-driven, performance-based approach, addressed not only congestion management needs of the region that have emerged since 2010, but also develop consistent methods to support the 2045 RTP Update and ensure federal compliance.


The 2010 CMP was fully integrated into the 2040 Regional Transportation Plan. This ensured the CMP is a living part of the transportation plan development process and eliminated the need for a stand-alone CMP document.


The 2010 CMP was an update to the 2004 Congestion Management System to meet the requirements of the Safe, Accountable, Flexible, and Efficient Transportation Act - A Legacy for Users (SAFETEA-LU). An update was completed in April 2008 and with a 2010 biennial update.
