PM2: Infrastructure Condition

Infrastructure Condition

Infrastructure Condition

 

The National Highway Performance Program (NHPP) provides support for the condition and performance of the National Highway System (NHS), for the construction of new facilities, and to ensure that investments of Federal-aid funds in highway construction are directed to support progress toward the achievement of performance targets established in a State's asset management plan for the NHS. 

The Pavement and Bridge Condition Performance Measures Final Rule was published on January 18th, 2017 with a rule effective date of May 20th, 2017. State DOTs were required to set targets by May 20, 2018, and MPOs have until November 16, 2018 (180 days after) to report their targets to the State DOTs. 

State DOTs are requried to set 2-year and 4-year targets, however MPOs are only required to set 4-year targets. For the target setting process, to the maximum extent practicable, the MPO and State DOTs must coordinate in the selection of performance targets.

Pavement Condition

For each of the below performance measures MPOs can agree to support the State DOT Target or establish their own target specific to the MPO planning area:

  • Percentage of pavements on the Interstate System in Good condition
  • Percentage of pavements on the Interstate System in Poor condition
  • Percentage of the non-interstate National Highway System in Good condition
  • Percentage of the non-interstate National Highway System in Poor condition

On November 15, 2018, the Transportation Policy Board of the Memphis Urban Area Metropolitan Planning Organization (MPO) approved a resolution indicating that the Memphis MPO will support each individual state's pavement condition targets, which are shown in the table below:

PAVEMENT CONDITION PERFORMANCE MEASURES TENNESSEE (TDOT) MISSISSIPPI (MDOT)
BASELINE (2017) 4-YEAR TARGET (2021) BASELINE (2017) 4-YEAR TARGET (2021)
PERCENT OF PAVEMENT IN GOOD CONDITION (INTERSTATE) 75.6% 60.0% 75.0% 55.0%
PERCENT OF PAVEMENT IN POOR CONDITION (INTERSTATE) 0.14% 1.0% 0.99% 5.0%
PERCENT OF PAVEMENT IN GOOD CONDITION (NON-INTERSTATE NHS) 72.7% 42.0% 62.5% 25.0%
PERCENT OF PAVEMENT IN POOR CONDITION (NON-INTERSTATE NHS) 6.7% 4.0% 9.3% 10.0%

Bridge Condition

For each of the below performance measures MPOs can agree to support the State DOT Target or establish their own target specific to the MPO planning area:

  • Percentage of National Highway System bridges classified as in Good condition
  • Percentage of National Highway System bridges classified as in Poor condition

On November 15, 2018, the Transportation Policy Board of the Memphis Urban Area Metropolitan Planning Organization (MPO) approved a resolution indicating that the Memphis MPO will support each individual state's bridge condition targets, which are shown in the table below:

BRIDGE CONDITION PERFORMANCE MEASURES TENNESSEE (TDOT) MISSISSIPPI (MDOT)
BASELINE (2017) 4-YEAR TARGET (2021) BASELINE (2017) 4-YEAR TARGET (2021)
PERCENT OF BRIDGES BY DECK AREA IN GOOD CONDITION 39.5% 36.0% 61.7% 60.0%
PERCENT OF BRIDGES BY DECK AREA IN POOR CONDITION 4.9% 6.0% 2.1% 5.0%

By agreeing to support the states’ (Mississippi and Tennessee) Infrastructure Condition targets, the Memphis MPO agrees to:

  • Work with the states and relevant stakeholders to address areas of concern for pavement and bridge condition within the metropolitan planning area
  • Coordinate with the states and include the infrastructure condition targets for those measures in the long-range regional transportation plan (RTP)
  • Integrate into the metropolitan transportation planning process, the infrastructure goals, objectives, performance measures and targets described in other state transportation plans and processes
  • Include a description in the TIP (Transportation Improvement Program) of the anticipated effect of the TIP toward achieving pavement and bridge condition targets in the RTP, linking investment priorities in the TIP to those infrastructure condition targets
