Congestion Management Process (CMP)

Reducing Congestion in the Mid-South

The Congestion Management Process (CMP) is a performance planning process that addresses congestion and mobility within the Memphis Urban Area Metropolitan Planning Organization (MPO) planning boundary. Preparation of the Congestion Management Process is required by the federal transportation legislation known as Fixing America's Surface Transportation (FAST) Act, and the Metropolitan Planning Code of Federal Regulations (23CFR 450.322) of the United States Department of Transportation. 

The Memphis MPO's CMP is intended to be a systematic and regionally accepted approach for managing congestion that provides accurate and up-to-date information on transportation system performance, and assesses alternative strategies for congestion management that meet state, regional, and local needs.

2020 Congestion Management Process (CMP) Plan Update

The Memphis MPO’s 2020 Congestion Management Process (CMP) Plan Update documents the alterations and improvements made to the Memphis MPO’s CMP, and outlines how these alterations and improvements are integrated into various aspects of the MPO’s planning process. As part of this effort, the 2020 CMP Plan Update aims to improve the MPO's ability to identify regional congestion issues and primary sources of congestion, monitor and assess the effectiveness of existing congestion management strategies, and implement proven congestion management strategies through its programming process. On August 20, 2020, the Transportation Policy Board (TPB) of the Memphis MPO adopted the 2020 Congestion Management Process Plan Update. The CMP will be updated on an as-needed basis.

Resumen ejecutivo Actualización del plan de proceso de gestión de congestión 2020

The Memphis MPO’s Congestion Management Process Steering Committee was consulted on several occasions during the development of the 2020 CMP Plan Update, and provided guidance and insight that was critical to the development of the Plan. The Traffic Operations Advisory Committee (TOAC) has since replaced the CMP Steering Committee to assist with the continued implementation of the CMP, and to facilitate interagency coordination in a number of areas related to congestion management, Intelligent Transportation Systems (ITS), and data sharing. The agendas, meeting minutes, presentations, and other meeting materials provided at the Traffic Operations Advisory Committee and Congestion Management Process Steering Committee meetings can be found in the table below.

Annual Report

The Memphis MPO’s Annual CMP Report is intended to build upon previous reporting efforts and provide a snapshot of the performance of the regional transportation system. The report updates the analysis conducted in the 2020 CMP Plan Update with new data, and documents alterations made to the CMP Network, datasets, or performance measures included in the Memphis MPO’s CMP. The Annual CMP Report is included in the Memphis MPO’s State of the MPO Report, which is presented at the first Engineering and Technical Committee (ETC) and Transportation Policy Board (TPB) meetings of the year.

The following CMP dashboards are updated annually record the performance of the regional transportation system and corridors included in the Memphis MPO’s CMP Network using the performance measures included in the MPO’s CMP. For more information on the performance measures included in this analysis, see Appendix D of the 2020 CMP Plan Update.
