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 450.320) of the United States Department of Transportation.
The Memphis MPO is committed to maintaining a CMP that emphasizes the need to link the effective management and operations of transportation systems to the planning process, environmental review process, travel demand management as well as other related disciplines. As part of the CMP, a Multimodal Strategy Toolbox was developed to help agencies in the region combat congestion and mobility issues. Strategies to increase mobility fall in the categories listed below:
In August 2015 the Transportation Policy Board (TPB) of the Memphis MPO adopted the Congestion Management Process.
The Memphis MPO also publishes a biennial CMP Report to provide the public and stakeholders a snapshot of the region's congestion and mobility issues.
Public input is key to help identify congestion and mobility issues in the region. To join our mailing list, please select the following link.
