Ideas in Action: National Online Dialogue on Improving Transportation Performance

From May 21 to June 22, 2012, the Federal Highway Administration (FHWA) engaged its stakeholders through a virtual town hall meeting that explored ways to improve transportation performance management.

During the National Online Dialogue (NOD) on Improving Transportation Performance, Federal, State, local, and tribal transportation professionals had the opportunity to share, vote, and comment on experiences and strategies for improving the safety, condition, and mobility of America’s highways and connecting road networks. Nearly 400 stakeholders participated in the NOD.

Topics discussed included:

  • Adequacy of arterial traffic volume data for performance management.
  • Need for better trade-off analysis tools.
  • Need for more peer-to-peer workshops.
  • Availability of bicyclist and pedestrian data.
  • Development of methods for establishing performance measures and setting targets.

On August 16, 2012, from 1:30 to 3:30 p.m. (eastern daylight time), FHWA will host a Webinar on “Ideas in Action: National Online Dialogue Results.” The Webinar will summarize the NOD and share how FHWA is using selected idea submissions to shape its stakeholder engagement and communication activities. To register for the Webinar, visit www.nhi.fhwa.dot.gov/resources/webconference/web_conf_learner_reg.aspx?webconfid=24745. The archive of the NOD will be available at https://fhwaperformance.ideascale.com until September 1, 2012.

For more information on the Webinar, contact Michael Nesbitt at FHWA, 202-366-1179 (email: michael.nesbitt@dot.gov).
