  • Abstract:
    This is the ninth in a periodic series of reports issued by the Metropolitan Planning Division, Federal Highway Administration. Included in this issue are two final reports of recent research in the area of metropolitan transportation planning, specifically with regard to congestion management. The research behind both reports was sponsored by the Metropolitan Planning Division. This document was produced and is being distributed as part of a continuing effort by FHW A's Office of Environment and Planning to share timely and pertinent information to the transportation community. The material for this issue was prepared as part of the "Developing Effective Congestion Management Systems" initiative, for which four metropolitan areas were chosen as case studies: Albany, NY; Dallas/ Ft. Worth, TX; Seattle, WA; and Washington, DC. A brief summary of the initial experiences of these four regions was presented in a previous issue, Metropolitan Planning Technical Report Number 8 (September 1995). This issue contains the full text of the final case study reports from the Albany and Dallas MPOs, respectively, the Capital District Transportation Committee (CDTC) and the North Central Texas Council of Governments (NCTCOG). Readers can expect future issues to present final reports from the Seattle and Washington, DC case studies. Both reports included here share examples of practice and increase the professional knowledge of those working to develop, implement, and sustain congestion mitigation and mobility enhancement activities. The information varies in discussion from the technical and institutional, to the planning process in general. The material is also relevant to state DOT and MPO staff continuing work with congestion management systems (CMSs) -- one of the six management systems outlined in the Intermodal Surface Transportation Efficiency Act (ISTEA) of 1991. It is recognized that each MPO and state DOT is different, and that they will vary widely in their ability to apply or benefit from these case study experiences. Selected for the variety of approaches they present, the cases are presented as examples of practice.
