The purpose of a Congestion Management Process (CMP) is to support the Metropolitan Planning Organization’s (MPO) transportation planning process by identifying strategies that promote more efficient transportation system management and operations versus traditional highway capacity improvement projects. The CMP supports the Long-Range Transportation Plan (LRTP) by identifying the traffic “hot spots” in the Montgomery region and developing projects and strategies that can be implemented in the Transportation Improvement Plan (TIP) and LRTP. CMP projects constructed across the U.S. have illustrated that traffic flow can be improved at a fraction of the cost of major highway capacity improvements projects while minimizing right-of-way and community impacts.
