major planning themes
Major Planning Themes

Accelerates project delivery and promotes innovation

Establishes a performance-based Federal Program

Encourages corridor planning with planning-environmental linkages provisions

metropolitan transportation plan
Metropolitan Transportation Plan
  • MTP shall include:
    • A description of the transportation system performance measures and respective performance targets (23 USC 134 (i)(2)(B))
    • A system performance report and subsequent updates evaluating the condition and performance of the transportation system including (23 USC 134(i)(2)(C)):
      • Progress achieved by the MPO in meeting the performance targets in comparison with performance recorded in previous reports.
      • MPO’s that voluntarily elect to develop multiple scenarios must include an analysis of how the preferred scenario has improved the transportation system condition and performance
metropolitan transportation plan1
Metropolitan Transportation Plan
  • MTP shall include (cont.):
    • Identification of transportation facilities (including major roadways, transit, multimodal and intermodal facilities, non-motorized transportation facilities, and intermodal connectors) that should function as an integrated metropolitan transportation system, giving emphasis to those facilities that serve important national and regional transportation functions.
regional transportation planning organizations rtpos
Regional Transportation Planning Organizations (RTPOs)
  • Optional: A state may establish and designate RTPOs to assist in addressing the needs of nonmetropolitan areas
    • FHWA guidance is forthcoming
  • RTPO shall be a multi-jurisdictional organization of nonmetropolitan local officials and representatives of local transportation systems
  • RTPOs shall establish a policy committee, compromised of non-metro local officials, and as appropriate representatives from the state, private business, transportation service providers, economic development practitioners, and the public in the region
regional transportation planning organizations rtpos1
Regional Transportation Planning Organizations (RTPOs)
  • RTPOs shall establish a fiscal and administrative agent, such as an existing regional planning and development organization to provide professional planning management and administrative support
  • Duties
    • Regional long-range multimodal transportation plans
    • Regional Transportation Improvement Programs
    • Coordination of local planning, land use, and economic development
regional transportation planning organizations rtpos2
Regional Transportation Planning Organizations (RTPOs)
  • Duties (cont.)
    • Technical assistance to local officials
    • Participate in National, multi-state, State policy and planning development processes
    • Provide a forum for public participation in regional and statewide planning
    • Sharing plans and programs with neighboring RTPOs, MPOs, and tribal organizations

States without RTPOs shall consult with the affected nonmetropolitan local officials with transportation responsibilities

regional transportation planning organizations rtpos3
Regional Transportation Planning Organizations (RTPOs)
  • Long Range Statewide Transportation Plan
    • In nonmetropolitan areas, LRSTPs shall be developed in cooperation with affected non-metropolitan officials with transportation responsibilities or RTPOs
    • LRSTPs should include a description of the performance measures and targets used in assessing the performance of the transportation system
  • Statewide Transportation Improvement Program
    • In non-metropolitan areas, STIP shall be developed in consultation with affected non-metropolitan local officials with transportation responsibilities or RTPOs
    • Shall include a description of the anticipated effect of the STIP toward achieving the performance targets established in the LRSTP, linking investment priorities to those performance targets
regional transportation planning organizations rtpos4
Regional Transportation Planning Organizations (RTPOs)
  • Project Selection
    • Provisions for project selection are essentially the same as they were previously
    • Projects carried out in rural areas shall be selected from the approved STIP (excluding NHS projects, Bridge program, IM program) by the State in cooperation with the affected non metropolitan local officials with responsibility for transportation, or through RTPO’s
    • Projects carried out in rural areas on the NHS or under the Bridge program or IM program shall be selected from the approved STIP by the State in consultation with the affected non-metropolitan local officials with responsibility for transportation, or through RTPO’s
performance management
Performance Management
  • Legislation identifies seven national goals
    • Safety
    • Infrastructure Conditions
    • Congestion Reduction
    • System Reliability
    • Freight Movement and Economic Vitality
    • Environmental Sustainability
    • Reduced Project Delivery Delays
performance management1
Performance Management
  • Authorizes performance measures and standards for 13 highway performance areas and 2 transit performance areas
    • Condition of pavements and bridges
    • Performance of Interstate system and National Highway System
    • Number of fatalities
    • Congestion
    • On-Road Mobile Sources
    • Assessing freight movement on the Interstate system
    • Others
performance management2
Performance Management

States, MPO’s and public transportation agencies will set targets for USDOT-established performance measures

State-selected performance targets shall be coordinated with RTPOs in non-MPO areas

State-selected performance targets for transit shall be coordinated with providers of public transportation to the maximum extent practicable

Selection of performance targets by the MPO’s shall be coordinated with the State and providers of public transportation to ensure consistency to the maximum extent practicable

performance management3
Performance Management

Timeframe

18 months after enactment of MAP-21 (October 1, 2012), U.S. DOT will propose rulemaking establishing performance measures.

1 year after U.S. DOT establishes performance measures, the States will establish targets.

6 months after States establish targets, the MPO’s will establish targets

Within 4 years after enactment, and biennially thereafter, the States will report to USDOT on progress toward targets.

state planning and research funds
State Planning and Research Funds
  • New formula: Takedown of 2% of the core programs (NHPP, STP, CMAQ, and HSIP)
  • SPR eligibilities unchanged
    • Statewide and non-metropolitan planning and metropolitan planning are eligible for Surface Transportation Program (STP) funds
    • Statewide and nonmetropolitan planning and metropolitan planning are not eligible for National Highway Performance Program (NHPP) funds
planning and environmental linkages
Planning and Environmental Linkages
  • Section 1310: Integration of Planning and Environmental Review
    • Establishes authorities that will facilitate the use of planning decisions and documents, that meet specific conditions, in the environmental review process
      • Applies to:
        • Planning Decisions (modal choice, environmental setting, programmatic level mitigation, etc.) and Planning Analyses (travel demands, local land use, population and employment, etc.)
        • FHWA guidance is forthcoming
    • Establishes ten conditions for the adoption of the planning products
planning and environmental linkages1
Planning and Environmental Linkages
  • Examples of Conditions: subject to determination of lead Federal agency, with concurrence of participating agencies and an opportunity for public notice and comment
    • Planning product was developed from planning process conducted pursuant to applicable Federal law
    • Planning product was developed by engaging in active consultation with Federal and State resource agencies and Indian tribes
    • Planning process included broad multidisciplinary consideration of corridor-wide transportation needs and potential effects
    • The lead Federal agency has made documentation relating to the planning product available to Federal, State, local, and tribal governments that may have an interest in the proposed action, and to members of the general public, and has considered any resulting comments
what has not changed
What Has Not Changed

FTA and FHWA to continue to jointly administer state and metropolitan planning programs

Population thresholds for MPO’s and TMA’s

TIP to be updated at least once every 4 years

MTP updated at least once every 4 years in air quality nonattainment and maintenance areas, and every 5 years in attainment areas

Eight planning factors
