Appendix A: Project Prioritization and Scoring

INTRODUCTION

As described in Chapter 2, the Transportation Improvement Program (TIP) development and project prioritization and funding process consists of numerous phases and is supported by several different funding sources. This appendix includes information about transportation projects that the Boston Region Metropolitan Planning Organization (MPO) considered for funding through the Highway Discretionary (Regional Target) Program in the federal fiscal years (FFYs) 2024–28 TIP.

 

To be considered for funding by the MPO, a project must fulfill certain basic criteria. Projects evaluated through the MPO’s Bicycle Network and Pedestrian Connections, Complete Streets, Intersection Improvements, and Major Infrastructure investment programs must meet these criteria:

 

 

For projects evaluated through the MPO’s Community Connections Program, the following criteria apply:

 

 

If a project meets the above criteria, it is presented to the MPO board in the Universe of Projects (Table A-1) to be considered for funding. This project list is presented to the MPO board in November and provides a snapshot of information available on projects at that stage in the TIP development. Some projects that get evaluated for funding may not appear in the Universe, as more project information may become available following the compilation of the Universe. In addition, some projects that appear on the Universe list may not be evaluated each year if these projects are not actively being advanced by municipal or state planners or if they are not at the minimum required level of design for evaluation. Community Connections projects are not typically included in the Universe because proponents of those projects apply for funding through a discrete application process, the submission deadline for which is after the presentation of the Universe to the MPO board.

 

Once a proponent provides sufficient design documentation for a project in the Universe and the municipality or state is actively prioritizing the project for funding, the project can be evaluated by MPO staff. The evaluation criteria used to score projects are based on the MPO’s goals and objectives. After the projects are evaluated, the scores are shared with project proponents, posted on the MPO’s website, and presented to the MPO board for review and discussion. The scores for projects evaluated during development of the FFYs 2024–28 TIP for programming in the MPO’s Bicycle Network and Pedestrian Connections, Complete Streets, and Intersection Improvements programs are summarized in Table A-3. No projects were evaluated for inclusion in the Major Infrastructure investment program during the development of the FFY 2024-28 TIP.  Scores for projects that applied for funding through the MPO’s Community Connections Program during the FFYs 2024–28 TIP cycle are summarized in Table A-4.

 

 

The MPO board approved a suite of changes to the TIP project selection criteria in October 2020. One of the central goals was to create distinct criteria for each investment program to allow for evaluations to be conducted in ways that better reflect the nuances of different types of transportation projects. For this reason, the project selection criteria for each investment program are shown in separate tables in this appendix as follows: Bicycle Network and Pedestrian Connections (Table A-5); Community Connections (Table A-6); Complete Streets (Table A-7); Intersection Improvements (Table A-8); and Major Infrastructure (Table A-9). Archived project evaluation criteria for all investment programs, which were discontinued in October 2020 after the FFYs 2021–25 TIP cycle, are shown in Tables A-10 and A-11.

 

 

In addition to project scores, several other factors are taken into consideration by the MPO when selecting projects for funding. Table A-2 describes many of these elements, including the relationships between the MPO’s FFYs 2024–28 Regional Target projects and the MPO’s Long-Range Transportation Plan (LRTP), studies and technical assistance conducted by MPO staff through the Unified Planning Work Program (UPWP), the federally required performance measures discussed in Chapter 4, and Massachusetts’ modal plans. These projects are listed by MPO investment program. More details about each of these projects are available in the funding tables and project descriptions included in Chapter 3. Performance-related information for the FFYs 2024–28 Regional Target projects is included in Chapter 4, and information about greenhouse gas (GHG) emissions for these projects is available in Appendix B.

4–28 TIP Universe of Projects

Projects grouped by MAPC subregion and by MPO Investment Program
This table contains unprogrammed projects in the Boston region that may be considered for evaluation in the FFYs 2024-28 TIP cycle. Not all projects listed in this table will be evaluated for funding in the FFYs 2024-8 TIP, as projects must be PRC approved and submit sufficient project documentation prior to scoring. The MPO has also established a policy to prioritize projects that have reached the 25% design submission stage for funding. This list is subject to change as more project information is received.

The primary purpose of the Community Connections Program is to close gaps in the transportation network, especially those in the first or last mile between transit and a destination. Projects will be awarded points based on how effectively a proposed project closes different types of gaps and makes travel easier or more efficient. Connection to existing activity hubs and residential developments (9/6 points) Application materials, CTPS GIS layers reflecting relevant destinations and employment and population density Projects can earn points for any combination of conditions, up to the noted overall maximum. Area projects (up to 9 points) 0 If the project area includes* no dense employment concentrations, or dense residential concentrations, or Major Civic Destinations. +2 for each dense employment concentration OR dense residential concentration included in the project area, up to a maximum of 6 points +1 if the project targets a specific dense employment concentration, OR dense residential concentration, or Major Civic Destination +.25 points for each Major Civic Destination included in the project area, up to a maximum of 2 points Point projects (up to 6 points) 0 points if the project has no locations/stops within** ½ mile of a dense employment concentration OR a dense residential concentration +1 point for each location/stop within ½ mile of a dense employment concentration OR a dense residential concentration, up to a maximum of 4 points +2 points for each location/stop within ¼ mile of a dense employment concentration OR a dense residential concentration, up to a maximum of 4 points +.25 points for each location/stop within a ½ mile of a Major Civic Destination, up to a maximum of 1 point +.5 points for each location/stop within a ¼ mile of a Major Civic Destination, up to a maximum of 1 point *A project area includes a dense employment or residential concentration if it contains more than 50% of a transportation analysis zone (TAZ) that meets employment or residential density thresholds **For dense employment or residential concentrations, ”Within” is defined as the location being within the specified distance of the centroid of the relevant TAZs

Coordination or cooperation between multiple entities  (15 points)      
The MPO prioritizes collaboration among different entities in the transportation planning process. Cooperative project planning and execution is particularly important for first-mile and last-mile connections of the type that the Community Connections Program is intended to facilitate. The cooperation can involve actors from both the public and private sectors. Number of collaborating entities (15 points) Application materials +3 for each collaborating entity beyond the sponsor, up to a maximum of 9 points -15 for Bus Lane, TSP, or E-Ink projects that do not have a letter of support from the MBTA Additionally +3 If the project consists of collaborators from multiple sectors (i.e., public and private, or public and nonprofit) +3 If each listed collaborator has provided a formal letter of support to the MPO
Inclusion in and consistency with local and regional plans (15 points)      
A comprehensive planning process is important to ensure that projects occur in an environment of collaboration and careful consideration rather than independently. This criterion proposes to award points based on the extent to which a proposed project has been included in prior plans at both the local and regional levels, and whether it meets the goals of those plans. Inclusion in local plans (6 points) Application materials, local plans Project is scored based on the best condition it meets. +3 if the project supports a theme, idea, or concept in a local comprehensive plan or equivalent document. +6 If the project is specifically included as a need or priority in a local comprehensive plan or equivalent document
Inclusion in MPO plans (6 points) Application materials, LRTP Needs Assessment, UPWP Database, MAPC plans Project earns points for each condition met. +3 If the project is identified as a need in a current or previous LRTP Needs Assessment or another regional plan +3 if the project or a large element thereof is recommended in MPO/MAPC technical studies
Inclusion in statewide plans (3 point) Application materials, LRTP Needs Assessment +3 If the project is included as a need or priority in MassDOT or other statewide planning studies
TRANSPORTATION EQUITY (18 points)      
The MPO seeks to prioritize investments that benefit equity populations, while minimizing any burdens associated with MPO-funded projects for these populations. Serves one or more transportation equity demographics, as identified by the MPO (18 points) Application materials, CTPS GIS layers See detailed scoring criteria handout: https://docs.google.com/document/d/1YXBvJoj2FM2UJp0qd88Ew_n_KR5OscyS/edit?usp=sharing&ouid=110620465990841651473&rtpof=true&sd=true 
GENERATION OF MODE SHIFT  (12 points)      
Another primary purpose of the Community Connection Program is to enable modal shift from SOV to transit or other modes. This criterion awards points based on the project’s effectiveness at creating mode shift and/or enabling trips that were previously impossible by non-SOV modes. Allow new trips that would not be otherwise possible without a car (12 points) Application materials This criterion will be scored by MPO staff based on materials and narrative provided in the project application, considering factors such as: •Whether the project competes with or complements existing transit service •If the project brings non-SOV transportation options to an area that previously had few or none •Whether the project provides complementary connections to existing non-SOV transportation  services and infrastructure •Whether the project serves a particular, identified transportation purpose that includes or facilitates mode shift •If relevant, whether the project shows it has a viable path to fiscal independence at the end of the MPO grant period •Reliability of projected local or other non-MPO financial contributions •If the project serves a population that travels through the project area but does not live adjacent to or within it •The quality and innovation of the project's marketing plan, when relevant
DEMAND PROJECTION (12 points)      
Gaining an understanding of how many transportation network users a project will reach is crucial for understanding its cost-effectiveness. Overall demand estimate (6 points) Application materials 0 If the application contains no estimates of demand or usage +3 If the application contains estimates of demand or usage, but no documentation of methods used to create them or background information +6 If the application contains estimates of demand or usage that are backed by extensive documentation of methods used to create the estimates and/or other relevant background information
Staff evaluation of demand estimate (6 points) Application materials 0 If staff judge that demand/usage projections are unrealistic or not present +3 if staff judge that demand/usage projections are somewhat realistic                                       +6 If staff judge that demand/usage projections are realistic
BUDGET SHEET (10 points)      
  Quality of information provided (10 points) Application materials 0 if there is no budget sheet present or the budget sheet does not contain useful information +5 if the budget sheet is incomplete or inaccurate, but usable with work +10 if the budget sheet is completed with all necessary information
Definitions Area projects: Those that are geographically defined as a polygon, rather than delivered at a particular point or points. Examples: microtransit covering an entire town, or an education project for a neighborhood. Point projects: Those that are delivered at a particular point or points and can be geographically defined as such. Examples: bike racks, fixed-route transit (the stops are the points) Population density concentration: any TAZ with more than 4,000 people per square mile. Employment density concentration: any TAZ with more than 4,000 jobs per square mile Frequent service: Follows the MBTA Service Delivery Policy. Stops with frequent service defined are defined in a CTPS layer used in pilot round CC scoring and for the Destination 2040 Needs Assessment. This layer measures frequency at the stop level rather than the route level; that is, a stop with four buses per hour, from two different routes, is considered a frequent stop.

Key    
Blue = Criteria that apply to all projects    
Green = Criteria for capital projects    
Red/Pink = Criteria for operating projects    
     
OBJECTIVE CRITERIA FACTORS
PROJECT ELIGIBILITY VERIFICATION    
Each project funded through this program must show an air quality benefit when analyzed through the MPO’s air quality analysis process. Projects must be ready to begin construction or operation by October 2020. Project sponsors or proponents must demonstrate that they have gained support from stakeholders and have the institutional capacity to carry out the project within the MPO timeframe. Air Quality Analysis Projects must pass a spreadsheet-based air quality benefit test based on a variety of data inputs customized to the type of project.
  Proponent's Project Management Capacity Names, experience, and time commitment of project management staff, as provided by the proponent.
GENERAL SCORING CRITERIA  (30 possible points)    
Network or connectivity value (6 points)    
The primary purpose of the Community Connections Program is to close gaps in the transportation network, especially those in the first or last mile between transit and a destination. Projects will be awarded points based on how effectively a proposed project closes different types of gaps and makes travel easier or more efficient. Connection to existing activity hubs and residential developments (2 points) Proximity of the project or service to employment, residential, and civic activity hubs, such as dense areas of employment or housing.
Connection to existing transit hubs (2 points) Proximity of the project to transit service, with added incentive for connecting to frequent or high-quality service.
Connection to other transportation infrastructure (2 points) Proximity of the project to sidewalk or protected or off-road bicycle infrastructure.
Coordination or cooperation between multiple entities  (5 points)    
The MPO prioritizes collaboration among different entities in the transportation planning process. Cooperative project planning and execution is particularly important for first-mile and last-mile connections of the type that the Community Connections Program is intended to facilitate. The cooperation can involve actors from both the public and private sectors. Number of collaborating entities (5 points) Number and variety (judged by sector of origin) of entities collaborating to support the project.
Inclusion in and consistency with local and regional plans (5 points)    
A comprehensive planning process is important to ensure that projects occur in an environment of collaboration and careful consideration rather than independently. This criterion proposes to award points based on the extent to which a proposed project has been included in prior plans at both the local and regional levels, and whether it meets the goals of those plans. Inclusion in local plans (2 points) Whether the project is included as a need or priority in a local comprehensive plan.
Inclusion in MPO plans (2 points) Whether the project is identified as a need in the LRTP Needs Assessment or recommended in an MPO or MAPC study.
Inclusion in statewide plans (1 point) Whether the project is included as a need or priority in a MassDOT or other statewide study.
Transportation equity (5 points)    
The MPO seeks to target investments to areas that benefit a high percentage of low-income and minority populations; minimize any burdens associated with MPO-funded projects in low-income and minority areas; and break down barriers to participation in MPO-decision making. Serves a demographic of transportation equity concern, as identified by the MPO (5 points) The extent to which the project serves equity populations.
Generation of mode shift (4 points)    
Another primary purpose of the Community Connection Program is to enable modal shift from SOV to transit or other modes. This criterion would award points based on the project’s effectiveness at creating mode shift and/or enabling trips that were previously impossible by non-SOV modes. Allow new trips that would not be otherwise possible without a car (4 points) Whether the project adds to overall non-automotive mobility by creating new connections or making trips possible that were not previously, without detracting from or competing with existing transit options.
Demand projection (4 points)    
Gaining an understanding of how many transportation network users a project will reach is crucial for understanding its cost-effectiveness. Overall demand estimate (2 points) Presence of demand/usage estimates and quality of analysis used to support them in the application materials.
Staff evaluation of demand estimate (2 points) Whether staff judge the demand/usage projections realistic.
TYPE-SPECIFIC EVALUATION CRITERIA: CAPITAL PROJECTS (30 points)    
SAFETY BENEFITS (12 points)    
Bicycle safety (6 points)    
Improving safety on the regional transportation network is one of the MPO’s key goals. This criterion would award points to projects that improve safety for the most vulnerable users of the network – people walking and people riding bicycles. An overall score of the effectiveness of bicycle safety countermeasures will be made through professional judgement comparing existing facilities, safety issues, use, and desired/anticipated use to the proposed bicycle safety countermeasures planned to be implemented as part of the project.  Total effectiveness of bicycle safety countermeasures (6 points) Existing and potential bicyclist usage of the infrastructure and effectiveness of the expected safety improvements.
Pedestrian safety  (6 points)    
An overall score of the effectiveness of pedestrian safety countermeasures will be made through professional judgement comparing existing facilities, safety issues, use, and desired/anticipated use to the proposed pedestrian safety countermeasures planned to be implemented as part of the project.  Total effectiveness of pedestrian safety countermeasures  (6 points) Existing and potential pedestrian usage of the infrastructure and effectiveness of the expected safety improvements.
Lifecycle cost-effectiveness (10 points)    
In addition to the initial construction costs, the MPO is concerned that projects funded through the Community Connection Program remain fiscally sustainable after MPO-awarded funding runs out. Projects proposed to the program should be cost-effective compared to potential alternatives, and proponents should demonstrate that local maintenance budgets will be able to accommodate the increased costs of maintaining the project. Lifecycle Alternatives Analysis (5 Points) Presence of a cost-effectiveness analysis in the application and whether the analysis is qualitative or quantitative.
Maintenance budget and plan (5 Points) Identification of a maintenance plan for the project, including the entity responsible for it and a source of funds.
Resilience to weather and environmental hazards (8 points)    
Resilience in the face of increasingly destructive storms and weather hazards is a growing concern in the Boston region, and is codified in the MPO’s System Preservation goal. Project proponents should demonstrate that their project will not cause damage to a sensitive ecosystem and that it will be able to resist damage from extreme weather events. Impact on areas of environmental concern (6 points) Magnitude of the project's environmental impact, positive or negative.
Relationship to resilience plans (2 points) Whether the project is included in local resilience plans.
TYPE-SPECIFIC CRITERIA: OPERATIONAL PROJECTS

Appendix B: Greenhouse Gas Monitoring and Evaluation

 

Background

 

The Global Warming Solutions Act of 2008 (GWSA) required statewide reductions in greenhouse gas (GHG) emissions of 25 percent below 1990 levels by the year 2020, and 80 percent below 1990 levels by 2050. As part of the GWSA, the Executive Office of Energy and Environmental Affairs developed the Massachusetts Clean Energy and Climate Plan (CECP), which outlined programs to attain the 25 percent reduction by 2020—including a 7.6 percent reduction attributed to the transportation sector.

 

The Commonwealth’s 13 metropolitan planning organizations (MPOs) are integrally involved in helping to achieve GHG emissions reductions mandated under the GWSA. The MPOs work closely with the Massachusetts Department of Transportation (MassDOT) and other involved agencies to develop common transportation goals, policies, and projects that will help to reduce GHG emissions levels statewide, and meet the specific requirements of the GWSA regulation, Global Warming Solutions Act Requirements for the Transportation Sector and the Massachusetts Department of Transportation (310 CMR 60.05). The purpose of this regulation is to assist the Commonwealth in achieving its adopted GHG emissions reduction goals by requiring the following:

 

 

The Commonwealth’s MPOs are meeting the requirements of this regulation through the transportation goals and policies contained in their LRTPs, the major projects planned in their LRTPs, and the mix of new transportation projects that are programmed and implemented through their TIPs.

 

The GHG tracking and evaluation processes enable the MPOs and MassDOT to identify the anticipated GHG impacts of the planned and programmed projects, and to use GHG impacts as criteria to prioritize transportation projects. This approach is consistent with the GHG emissions reduction policies that promote healthy transportation modes through prioritizing and programming an appropriate balance of roadway, transit, bicycle, and pedestrian investments, as well as policies that support smart growth development patterns by creating a balanced multimodal transportation system.

 

Regional Tracking and Evaluating Long-Range Transportation Plans

 

MassDOT coordinated with MPOs and regional planning agencies to implement GHG tracking and to evaluate projects during the development of the LRTPs that were adopted in September 2011. This collaboration continued during the development of the LRTPs and amendments adopted in 2016, and for the TIPs produced for federal fiscal years (FFYs) 2016–19, 2017–21, 2018–22, 2019–23, 2020–24, 2021–25, and 2022–26. Working together, MassDOT and the MPOs have attained the following milestones:

 

Tracking And Evaluating the Transportation Improvement Program

 

In addition to monitoring the GHG impacts of projects in the LRTP that will add capacity to the transportation system, it also is important to monitor and evaluate the GHG impacts of all transportation projects that are programmed in the TIP. The TIP includes both the larger, capacity-adding projects from the LRTP and smaller projects, which are not included in the LRTP but that may affect GHG emissions. The principal objective of this tracking is to enable the MPOs to evaluate the expected GHG impacts of different projects and to use this information as criteria to prioritize and program projects in future TIPs.

 

In order to monitor and evaluate the GHG impacts of TIP projects, MassDOT and the MPOs have developed approaches for identifying anticipated GHG emissions impacts of different types of projects. Since carbon dioxide (CO2 ) is the largest component of GHG emissions overall and is the focus of regulation 310 CMR 60.05, CO2 has been used to measure the GHG emissions impacts of transportation projects in the TIP and LRTP.

 

All TIP projects have been sorted into two categories for analysis: 1) projects with quantified CO2 impacts, and 2) projects with assumed CO2 impacts. Projects with quantified impacts consist of capacity-adding projects from the LRTP and projects from the TIP that underwent a Congestion Mitigation and Air Quality Improvement (CMAQ) program spreadsheet analysis. Projects with assumed impacts are those that would be expected to produce a minor decrease or increase in emissions, and those that would be assumed to have no CO2 impact.

 

Travel Demand Model

 

Projects with quantified impacts include capacity-adding projects in the LRTP that were analyzed using the Boston Region MPO’s travel demand model set. No independent calculations were done for these projects during the development of the TIP.

 

Off-Model Methods

 

MassDOT’s Office of Transportation Planning provided spreadsheets that are used to determine projects’ eligibility for funding through the CMAQ program. Typically, MPO staff uses data from projects’ functional design reports, which are prepared at the 25-percent design phase, to conduct these calculations. Staff used these spreadsheets to calculate estimated projections of CO2 for each project, in compliance with GWSA regulations. These estimates are shown in Tables B-1 and B-2. A note of “to be determined” is shown for those projects for which a functional design report was not yet available.

 

As part of the development of the FFYs 2024–28 TIP, analyses were done for the types of projects described below. A summary of steps performed in the analyses is provided.

 

Traffic Operational Improvement

 

For an intersection reconstruction or signalization project that typically reduces delay and, therefore, idling, the following steps are taken:

 

 

Pedestrian and Bicycle Infrastructure

 

For a shared-use path that would enable more walking and biking trips and reduce automobile trips, the following steps are taken:

 

 

Bus Replacement

 

For a program that replaces old buses with new buses that reduce emissions or run on cleaner fuel, the following steps are taken:

 

 

Other Types of Projects

 

Calculations may be performed on the project types listed below:

 

 

Analyzing Projects with Assumed Impacts

 

Qualitative Decrease or Increase in Carbon Dioxide Emissions

 

Projects with assumed CO2 impacts are those that could produce a minor decrease or increase in emissions, but the change in emissions cannot be calculated with any precision. Examples include a bicycle rack installation, Safe Routes to School project, or transit marketing or customer service improvement. These projects are categorized as producing an assumed nominal increase or decrease in emissions.

 

No Carbon Dioxide Impact

 

Projects that do not change the capacity or use of a facility—for example, a resurfacing project that restores a roadway to its previous condition, or a bridge rehabilitation or replacement that restores the bridge to its previous condition—are assumed to have no CO2 impact. More details about these projects are discussed in Chapter 3. The following tables display the GHG impact analyses of projects funded in the FFYs 2023–27 Highway Program (Table B-1) and Transit Program (Table B-2). Table B-3 summarizes the GHG impact analyses of highway projects completed before FFY 2024. Table B-4 summarizes the GHG impact analyses of transit projects completed before FFY 2024. A project is considered completed when the construction contract has been awarded or the transit vehicles have been purchased.
