State Highway Reliability Report - Florida

In the line graphs below, FHWA has shifted the "Year" label in the x-axis back by one year, from Data Reporting Year to Data Collection Year. More information

The information displayed is provided by the State Department of Transportation (DOT) in their 2018 Baseline Performance Report, 2019 Highway Performance Monitoring System (HPMS) data submittal, and 2020 Mid Performance Period (MPP) Progress Report and has not been edited by FHWA. Any questions about individual State reports should be directed to the respective State DOT.

Please note: FHWA has posted data from State DOT reports to help bring context to their performance targets. This data may result in some discrepancies among published State DOT performance data due to data sources and reporting years used when establishing the performance targets.

Significant Progress Determination

Using data from the 2020 MPP Progress Report, FHWA has determined whether a State DOT has made significant progress toward achieving its individual targets for five National Highway Performance Program (NHPP) measures and one National Highway Freight Program (NHFP) measure, as described in 23 CFR 490.109.

  • Interstate Highway Reliable Person-Miles Traveled

    Using the monthly interstate reliability measures from January 2014 to December 2017, a linear trend line analysis was conducted. Following an analysis of travel demand and exogenous factors which affect travel demand, the Department is adopting a conservative approach in setting targets for reliability. So, the lower end of the projected 2-year and 4-year range is selected as targets for this measure. The Department affirms that interstate system reliability is anticipated to decline from the current 82.2% to 75.0% in two years, and to 70.0% in four years. It is the intent of the Department to meet or exceed the established targets. A detailed report was prepared by Florida Department of Transportation (FDOT) that provides an overview of the National Performance Management Measures for Assessing Performance of the National Highway System, Freight Movement on the Interstate System, and Congestion Mitigation and Air Quality Improvement Program (CMAQ) Final Rule, the methodology to calculate the measures included in the rule, target setting process as well as the recommended 2 and 4-year performance targets. This report is uploaded in the Attachment tab for FHWA’s reference.

    At the midpoint of the performance period, reliability on the Interstate has improved by 1.5 percent over the baseline. This increase in reliability can be attributed to diligent efforts by the Department to execute its Work Program and implement projects across the state that improve the mobility of people and goods. Reliability on the Interstate at the midpoint exceeds the 2-year target set by the Department. As vehicle miles traveled have also increased during this time frame, differences between actual and target values can be attributed to several causes including continued improvements in data collection and the uncertainty inherent in predicting reliability. Due to these uncertainties, the four-year targets are reasonable and should not be adjusted at this time.

    N/A
    In the past two years, FDOT has implemented a number of projects across the state to improve reliability including accelerated phases of the I-4 Ultimate project in Orlando and completed the widening of I-75, providing three travel lanes from the Georgia state line to Tampa and beyond. In the future, the FDOT Five-Year Work Program includes projects to prepare our Interstate system to accommodate future population growth. This includes projects such as interchange modifications, lane additions, and TSM&O strategies to improve traffic flow on existing facilities.

    Behind the data: For the first performance period only, baseline condition and 2-year targets are not required for the Non-Interstate NHS reliability measure.


  • Non-Interstate National Highway System (NHS) Reliable Person-Miles Traveled

    Using the monthly non-interstate reliability measures from January 2017 to December 2017, a linear trend line analysis was conducted. Following an analysis of travel demand, exogenous factors which are expected to increase travel demand and based on the limited data set available for non-Intrastate NHS, the Department is adopting a very conservative approach in setting targets for reliability. So, the lowest end of the projected 4-year range is selected as the target for this measure. However, the Department intends to meet or exceed the established target. A detailed report was prepared by Florida Department of Transportation (FDOT) that provides an overview of the National Performance Management Measures for Assessing Performance of the National Highway System, Freight Movement on the Interstate System, and Congestion Mitigation and Air Quality Improvement Program (CMAQ) Final Rule, the methodology to calculate the measures included in the rule, target setting process as well as the recommended 2 and 4-year performance targets.

  • Interstate Highway Truck Travel Time Reliability

    Using the monthly truck reliability measures from January 2016 to December 2017, a linear trend line analysis was conducted. Following an analysis of travel demand and exogenous factors which affect travel demand, the Department is adopting a conservative approach in setting targets for reliability. So, the lower end of the projected 2-year and 4-year range is selected as the targets for this measure. The Department affirms that the Truck Travel Time Reliability Index is anticipated to decline from the current 1.43 to 1.75 in two years, and to 2.00 in four years. It is the intent of the Department to meet or exceed the established targets. A detailed report was prepared by Florida Department of Transportation (FDOT) that provides an overview of the “National Performance Management Measures for Assessing Performance of the National Highway System, Freight Movement on the Interstate System, and Congestion Mitigation and Air Quality Improvement Program (CMAQ) Final Rule”, the methodology to calculate the measures included in the rule, target setting process as well as the recommended 2 and 4-year performance targets. This report is uploaded in the “Attachment” tab for FHWA’s reference.

    At the midpoint of the performance period, the statewide Truck Travel Time Reliability Index increased slightly, from 1.43 to 1.45, indicating slightly worse reliability for trucks on the Interstate. This small decrease in reliability can be attributed to increases in both passenger vehicle miles traveled and truck vehicle miles traveled. The Truck Travel Time Reliability Index at the midpoint does exceed the 2-year target set by the Department. The uncertainty inherent in predicting reliability especially over longer, weekend, and overnight time frames as well as continuing improvements in data collection account for this difference between actual and target values. Due to these uncertainties, the four-year targets are reasonable and should not be adjusted at this time.

    N/A
    FDOT continually makes improvements to its system to ensure access and reliability for truck traffic. Prior accomplishments include the Port of Miami tunnel, providing a direct route to the port and removing truck traffic from congested roadways in downtown Miami, as well as interchange reconstructions to accommodate higher volume truck traffic. The State Freight and Mobility Plan, attached, includes FDOT’s planned projects to continue to make progress toward achieving our Index targets.

Significant Progress Determination

PLEASE NOTE: Each State’s performance target assessment is based on its own State-specific target methodology and program philosophy. Therefore, conclusions should not be drawn based only on the information in the 2020 Mid Performance Period Significant Progress Determination Results table. For example, the State may have set aggressive targets, and not met those targets, while another State may have set more easily attainable targets, and met those targets. FHWA understands that each State’s program is unique and therefore does not prescribe a methodology for States to set targets. States have the flexibility to use the methodology they deem most appropriate when setting their performance targets.

A State has met or made significant progress toward target achievement if “actual” condition/performance is equal to or better than the established two-year target or “actual” condition/performance is better than baseline performance 23 CFR 490.109 (e).
