Congestion Management Process
A Congestion Management Process (CMP) is a systematic and regionally accepted approach for managing congestion. It provides accurate, up-to-date information on transportation system performance and assesses altemative strategies for congestion management that meet state and local needs. The CMP is intended to move congestion management strategies into the funding and implementation stages of project development. Congestion management is the application of congestion management and reduction strategies to improve transportation system performance and reliability by reducing the adverse impacts of congestion on the movement of people and goods.
