Hi all,

This might be worth attending. Note the emphasis on MAP-21 performance measures and the fact that the availability of ped/bike data is one of the topics that US DOT solicited ideas about in terms of performance measures.

Thank you for viewing or contributing to FHWA’s National Online Dialogue on Improving Transportation Performance. Your participation in the dialogue made it a success. During the dialogue, stakeholders explored a variety of important topics, such as the


  • Adequacy of arterial traffic volume data for performance management
  • Need for better trade-off analysis tools
  • Need for more peer-to-peer workshops
  • Availability of bicycle/pedestrian data
  • Development of methods for establishing performance measures and target setting

FHWA is hosting a webinar on how the results of the dialogue will be used. During the webinar, FHWA will share:

  • Details on how it is using selected idea submissions to shape its stakeholder engagement and communication activities.
  • Results from the online dialogue, including a full report for download.
  • Upcoming transportation performance management stakeholder engagement activities and opportunities

Coincidently, the dialogue concluded a few weeks before the signing of a 27-month authorization for surface transportation funding. Included in the 27-month funding authorization is language requiring the use of performance management principles. The dialogue allowed FHWA to have a timely, “no-harm” conversation with a diverse group of stakeholders on how the transportation community can better use performance management principles.
