Congestion Management Process (CMP) is a systematic and regionally-accepted
approach for managing congestion that provides accurate, up-to-date information
on transportation system performance and assess alternative strategies for
congestion management that meet state and local needs. The CMP is intended to
apply such strategies to capacity increasing projects and improvements and
transition them into the funding and implementation stages for major corridors
identified in the CMP roadway network.
Technical Report is an evaluation of the current conditions of the Richmond
Regionís transportation network in terms of operations and safety. The data
collection and analyses of trends and conditions of the regional roadway network
help evaluate areas of need in order to reduce congestion issues and improve the
level of safety for commuters. Strategies are also identified for use in
congestion mitigation and safety on the roadway transportation network.
regulations require that a CMP be in place in all Transportation Management
Areas (TMAs) or urban areas over 200,000 in population. It must be implemented
as a continuous part of the metropolitan planning process, which includes the
Metropolitan Transportation Plan (MTP), the Transportation Improvement Program
(TIP), and the Unified
Planning Work Program (UPWP).
development of the CMP Technical Report involves extensive data collection for
performance measures such as travel time index, level of service, and total
crashes. Identification of major corridors for analysis and inclusion in the CMP
Network is also reviewed by localities, state and federal transportation
agencies to evaluate current conditions of the transportation roadway network
and efficiency of operations and safety within the regional network. Congestion
mitigation strategies are also identified and evaluated for application in the
Richmond Region for implementation and use on projects and improvements.
is updated in conjunction with the MTP update and dependent on the frequency of
updates for various data sources used in the Technical Report. The CMP may be
amended at any time to account for new or updated data available.
