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 transpmtation system
performance and reliability by reducing the adverse impacts of congestion on the movement of
people and goods.
