FHWA Publishes Performance Management Final Rules and NPRMs Required by MAP-21
MAP-21 transformed the Federal-aid highway program by establishing new requirements for performance management to ensure the most efficient investment of Federal transportation funds. Performance management increases the accountability and transparency of the Federal-aid highway program and provides for a framework to support improved investment decision making through a focus on performance outcomes for key national transportation goals.
On April 22, the Federal Highway Administration (FHWA) posted a Notice of Proposed Rulemaking (NPRM) in the Federal Register to propose national performance management measure regulations to assess the performance of the National Highway System, Freight Movement on the Interstate System, and the Congestion Mitigation and Air Quality Improvement Program, as required by the MAP-21 and the Fixing America's Surface Transportation Act ("FAST Act").
On May 27, 2016, the U.S. Department of Transportation's (USDOT) FHWA and Federal Transit Administration (FTA) published the Final Rule on Statewide and Nonmetropolitan Transportation Planning and Metropolitan Transportation Planning in the Federal Register to implement the changes to the planning process established by MAP-21 and the FAST Act.
