Performance Measures

Background

 

As a part of the Fixing America’s Surface Transportation (FAST) Act, which was signed into law on December 4, 2015, State DOTs and MPOs are required to establish quantifiable targets for performance measures. These targets help to keep jurisdictions accountable and are used by the Federal Highway Administration (FHWA) for investment decisions.

 

Overview

 

There are three performance measures (PM 1, 2 and 3) as follows:

 

Performance Measure 1 (PM1) – Safety

1.    Number of fatalities

2.    Rate of fatalities

3.    Number of serious injuries

4.    Rate of serious injuries

5.    Number of non-motorized fatalities and serious injuries

 

Performance Measure 2 (PM2) – Highway and Bridge Condition

1.    Percent of pavements of the Interstate system in good condition

2.    Percent of pavements of the Interstate system in poor condition

3.    Percent of pavements of the non-Interstate NHS in good condition

4.    Percent of pavements of the non-Interstate NHS in poor condition

5.    Percent of NHS bridges in good condition

6.    Percent of NHS bridges in poor condition

 

Performance Measure 3 (PM3) – Auto and Truck Time Reliability

1.    Percent of person-miles traveled on the Interstate that are reliable

2.    Percent of person-miles traveled on the non-Interstate NHS that are reliable

3.    Truck travel time reliability index

PM1 targets are set annually by the State and MPOs.

PM2 and PM3 targets are set every 4 years with mid-year reporting periods. PM2 and PM3 targets were set for 2018-2021.

 

2021 Targets

The tables below summarize the PM targets for the 2021 reporting period.

In all cases, Metro COG has decided to support the respective targets from each state DOT.
