Performance Management

 

New Federal Requirements and performance measures are created and tracked to ensure progress is being made towards a safe, efficient and cohesive transportation system. The history and Space Coast TPO’s role in the performance management system is explained further below.

HISTORY

In 2012, Congress passed the Moving Ahead for Progress in the 21st Century Act (MAP-21), which changed the way communities, transportation and planning agencies document and work towards incorporating certain planning factors into their projects. This approach was further refined in 2015 with the next Federal Highway Transportation Bill, Fixing America’s Surface Transportation Act (FAST Act).

The FAST Act included the following Planning Factors that must be addressed in all MPO/TPO planning documents.

Federal Planning Factors

– Support the economic vitality of the metropolitan area, especially by enabling global competitiveness, productivity, and efficiently;– Enhance the integration and connectivity of the transportation system, across and between modes, for people and freight;
– Increase the safety of the transportation system for motorized and non-motorized users;– Promote efficient system management and operation;
– Increase the security of the transportation system for motorized and non-motorized users;– Emphasize the preservation of the existing transportation system;
– Increase the accessibility and mobility of people and for freight;– Improve the resiliency and reliability of the transportation system and reduce or mitigate stormwater impacts of surface transportation; and
– Protect and enhance the environment, promote energy conservation, improve the quality of life, and promote consistency between transportation improvements and State and local planned growth and economic development patterns;– Enhance travel and tourism.

PERFORMANCE MEASURES

One method being used to implement a performance management program is through the establishment of setting performance goals, measures, and targets. There are four current Performance Measures that have been established by the Florida Department of Transportation. These are summarized below:

Performance Measure 1 – Safety – This was the first of the performance measures rules issued by the Federal Highway Administration and became effective on April 14, 2016. It established measures to assess the condition of road safety. Please click the following fact sheet for a summary of the FDOT Safety Performance Measure.

PM1: Safety – 2020 FDOT Measures and Targets

PM1: Safety – 2019 FDOT Measures and Targets

PM1: Safety – 2018 FDOT Measures and Targets

Performance Measure 2 – Bridge and Pavement – The second performance measure rule became effective on May 20, 2017. This one measures the conditions of roadway pavement and bridges on the National Highway System.

PM2: Bridge and Pavement, 2020 FDOT Measures and Targets

PM2: Bridge and Pavement, 2019 FDOT Measures and Targets

PM2: Bridge and Pavement, 2018 FDOT Measures and Targets

Performance Measure 3 – System Performance – The last of the performance measure rules became effective on May 20, 2017. PM3 establishes measures to assess the performance of the system, or how reliable the system is. 

PM3: System Performance, 2020 FDOT Measures and Targets

PM3: System Performance, 2019 FDOT Measures and Targets

PM3: System Performance, 2018 FDOT Measures and Targets

Transit – Asset Management – On October 1, 2016, a rule applying to all recipients of transit funding that own, operate, or manage public transportation capital assets was approved. Locally, Space Coast Area Transit has prepared a Transit Asset Management Plan that reflects their plan to keep all their vehicles in good repair.

SPACE COAST TPO PERFORMANCE MEASURES

The Space Coast TPO had the option to either adopt and support the FDOT targets for each of the performance measures above or create their own targets. The SCTPO opted to adopt and support the FDOT targets. The following Resolutions were approved reflecting this action.

Resolution 18-13, February 8, 2018, adopting FDOT Safety Performance Targets

Resolution 19-07, October 11, 2018, adopting FDOT Performance Targets for Safety, Bridge and Pavement and System Performance

Resolution 19-13, December 13, 2018, adopting Space Coast Area Transit’s, Transit Asset Management Plan and Targets

Space Coast Area Transit, Transit Asset Management Plan, September 2018

Resolution 20-10, February 13, 2020, adopting FDOT Safety Performance Targets for 2020

The SCTPO has prepared a performance report for its recently adopted 2045 LRTP. The report includes performance on all measures for both state and SCTPO targets and what current performance is for each.
