Project 9.5
Research Need for Corridor Performance Measures

Moving Ahead for Progress in the 21st Century Act (MAP-21) has created a surface transportation program with additional emphasis on performance-based measures. MAP-21 calls for states to establish performance goals, and then to report to FHWA on progress towards meeting these performance measures.

The Federal Highway Administration also concluded a project to study how states can work together to use performance management elements to improve corridor performance in the MAP-21 goal areas of safety, infrastructure condition, freight movement and economic vitality, and congestion reduction and system reliability. The project was called, "How to Improve Performance on Corridors of National Significance." A key goal of the project was to incorporate current information on performance management along with corridor-level planning, management and operational practices. North/West Passage is included in a summary of noteworthy practices from among selected coalitions across the country in the project report.

The focus of this North/West Passage project project was to determine if, and to what extent, performance measures can and should be established for the corridor.
