Congestion Management Process

This document details the WMPO’s congestion management process (CMP). The document describes the network the WMPO reviews for congestion, how congestion data is collected, how congestion data is evaluated, and what strategies are used by the WMPO to address congestion. Strategies within this document are aimed at reducing congestion while enhancing safety and multimodal mobility throughout the region. The WMPO is required to continually conduct a CMP by the Federal Highway Administration (FHWA).

The WMPO provides a Biennial Data Report every two years to demonstrate how the regional network is performing according to the performance metrics established in the CMP. The 2020 Biennial Data Report was adopted by the WMPO Board on January 27, 2021.
