As the federally designated Metropolitan Planning Organization (MPO) for the Hampton Roads region, the Hampton Roads Transportation Planning Organization (HRTPO) is required by federal legislation to develop and implement a Congestion Management Process (CMP) as an integrated part of the metropolitan transportation planning process. The Hampton Roads CMP is an on-going systematic process for managing congestion that provides information and analysis on multimodal transportation system performance and on strategies to alleviate congestion and enhance the mobility of persons and goods regionwide. During this process, HRTPO works with many stakeholders to develop these strategies and mobility options.
This Congestion Management Process Report is being released in three parts. This report – Part II –highlights System Performance. Part I of the study included the Introduction and information on System Monitoring, and Part III will detail Congestion Mitigation strategies.
