Geographic Area Covered: The nine-county Philadelphia metropolitan area, which includes the counties of Bucks, Chester, Delaware, Montgomery, and Philadelphia in Pennsylvania; and Burlington, Camden, Gloucester, and Mercer in New Jersey.

Abstract: This technical memorandum provides guidance to Pennsylvania and New Jersey departments of transportation project managers, consultants, and other agencies. It covers how projects move through the Congestion Management Process (CMP) and how to review potential Transportation Improvement Program (TIP) projects for consistency with the CMP. Projects that propose to add Single-Occupant Vehicle road capacity using federal transportation funds in the Delaware Valley Regional Planning Commission (DVRPC) region must be consistent with the CMP, or they cannot be funded in the TIP for Final Engineering. The memorandum includes diagrams and checklists. The DVRPC approach has considerable flexibility, complies with federal regulations, and helps advance regional goals. See other CMP documents, such as the 2019 Congestion Management Process (DVRPC Publication 20010), for more information.
