The 2013 Congestion Management Report

Home » Our Work » Congestion Management Process

This report documents the Congestion Management Process (CMP) of the Boston Region Metropolitan Planning Organization. The CMP report depicts an objectives-driven, performance-based approach that consists of eight steps, each of which is illustrated as a respective chapter, as listed below. The report outlines congestion monitoring results for limited-access highways (including high-occupancy-vehicle lanes), arterial roadways, public transit (commuter rail, rapid transit, bus, and commuter boat), pedestrian facilities, bicycle facilities, and intermodal facilities (such as park-and-ride lots and bicycle parking facilities).
