Research How to Improve Performance on Corridors of National Significance

Dear Corridor Coalition Leader, Practitioner, or Stakeholder:

The Federal Highway Administration (FHWA) would like to invite you to attend a stakeholder webinar on June 27 (10:00-11:30am EDT) or June 28 (1:00-2:30pm EDT). The webinar will present the findings of a study on "Research How to Improve Performance on Corridors of National Significance"; the feedback from those actually involved with multi-state corridors will help to better develop the research products of this study in the future.

The goal of the project is to understand how states can work together to use performance management elements to improve corridor performance in the MAP-21 goal areas of safety, infrastructure condition, freight movement and economic vitality, and congestion reduction and system reliability. This project involves the incorporation of current information on performance management along with corridor-level planning, management, and operations.

A key focus has also been on the institutional element: how corridor coalitions develop and how their members work together and with other partners.

The final product will be a maturity model that will help agencies gauge how corridor level planning and monitoring activities within their jurisdiction compare with current national standards as well as the future standards envisioned under MAP-21 for effective interstate corridor development and performance management. The analysis will also produce an implementation plan with practical recommendations for agencies and coalitions on improving and enhancing corridor management and development activities within their jurisdictions while taking into account each corridor's unique characteristics and priorities.
