4.      CMAQ Congestion Performance Measure Targets

Congress has established a performance-based planning and programming approach to investing in our nation's transportation infrastructure. There are two CMAQ Congestion performance measures, annual peak hour excessive delay (PHED) and percentage non-SOV travel, that apply to urbanized areas of over one million that are also air quality nonattainment areas. The DVRPC region is part of both the Philadelphia and New York urbanized areas and multiple States and MPOs have been collaborating to set a single target in each of these urbanized areas. Staff will provide an overview of the target-setting process and ask for a recommendation to adopt targets for each of these measures and urbanized areas.
