  • Abstract:
    The Federal Highway Administration’s (FHWA) Travel Model Improvement Program (TMIP) works with agencies and other members of the transportation planning and modeling community to improve information sharing and support the best available tools and methods. TMIP seeks to innovate, educate, and advocate for best practices by sponsoring its Web Knowledge and Information Exchange, Peer Review Program, ongoing research activities, and the use of web-based technologies to connect and collaborate with its user community. With the new emphasis on performance measurement and prediction under the Moving Ahead for Progress in the 21st Century Act (MAP-21), one of the efforts undertaken by TMIP involves developing a series of Agency Snapshot reports to highlight state and local agencies that support effective performance-based transportation planning and exemplify best practices. For each participating agency, the reports in this series identify available data, methods used to share data within and across the agency, tools employed for analysis, and the planning processes for which these data and analysis tools are utilized. Examples of snapshot reports that were produced as part of this series are available from the TMIP website (http://www.fhwa.dot.gov/planning/tmip/publications/other_reports/). It is important to note that the purpose of this Agency Snapshot report series is not to recommend a single analysis tool—or even a set of tools. Rather, this report series seeks to highlight agency successes and provide information and examples that may help other agencies identify appropriate tools and methods for their own analytical needs. Specifically, the objective of this report series is to be a reference for transportation planning practitioners and agencies seeking to understand how their peer agencies and professional colleagues select and apply analytical tools and methods to support data-driven, performance-based transportation planning. The focus of the current report is the practice undertaken by the Oregon Department of Transportation (ODOT). This report contains six sections in addition to this introduction: Section 2.0 presents selected background information on ODOT, Section 3.0 presents transportation planning services at ODOT, Section 4.0 presents tools and methods used by ODOT to support planning, Section 5.0 presents data used by ODOT to support planning, Section 6.0 presents selected performance measures applied by ODOT, Section 7.0 presents challenges and emerging issues faced by ODOT.
