PUBLIC COMMENT – COATS MPO DRAFT CONGESTION MANAGEMENT PLAN

Written by admin on 30th December 2021 News, Press Releases


The Congestion Management Plan (CMP) is an integral component of the metropolitan transportation planning process as it helps to identify areas with high congestion (as a complement to the travel demand modeling process) and recommends appropriate mitigation strategies that manage travel demand, reduce single occupancy vehicle (SOV) usage, and improve travel conditions without having to add roadway capacity. When capacity improvement projects are warranted, the CMP provides recommendations for facilitating future travel demand management strategies and operational improvements that will help maintain the functional integrity and safety of the roadway once additional travel lanes are added. The Columbia Area Transportation Study (COATS) Metropolitan Planning Organization (MPO) has developed a CMP to meet the unique needs of the Columbia metropolitan area.
