With the last decennial Census, the Portland Area Comprehensive Transportation System (PACTS) region has grown large enough to be counted among the Transportation Management Areas (TMA) by the Federal Highway Administration (FHWA). This new designation brings additional responsibilities, including the development of the region‟s first Congestion Management Process (CMP).
The CMP is an ongoing process of monitoring and addressing unacceptable multimodal congestion. In a performance-based planning process, the results of the CMP are a tool for PACTS to use to shape upcoming long range transportation plans (LRTP) and other planning efforts.
