Performance Measures Report

The Federal Highway Administration (FHWA) defines Transportation Performance Management (TPM) as a strategic approach that uses system performance information to make investment and policy decisions to achieve national performance goals. In short, TPM: is systematically applied;

  • provides key information to help decision-makers understand the consequences of investment decisions across transportation assets or modes;
  • improves communication between decision-makers, stakeholders, and the traveling public;
  • and ensures targets and measures are developed in cooperative partnerships and based on data and objective information.


Congress developed, through the Moving Ahead for Progress in the 21st Century (MAP-21) Act and the Fixing America’s Surface Transportation (FAST) Act, new rules for states and metropolitan planning organizations (MPOs) to collect data and establish performance targets, to be utilized in transportation planning and programming processes.


Rather than setting its own targets, the TwinCATS MPO has chosen to support the statewide safety, pavement, bridge, system performance and targets set by MDOT, and the transit asset management targets set by the Twin Cities Area Transportation Authority (TCATA). The MPO supports those targets by agreeing to plan and program projects so that they contribute toward the accomplishment of the performance measures.
