Performance Reporting

Agency-wide performance reporting is a high priority at WSDOT. Although the Gray Notebook is the agency's main performance assessment, reporting, and communication tool, there are many other related accountability and performance products available. This site provides links to websites and documents such as Results WSDOT (WSDOT's Strategic Plan), Results Washington (the governor's performance management system), Transportation Policy Goals, and the Washington Transportation Plan.

The Gray Notebook
Originally titled Measures, Markers and Mileposts, the Gray Notebook (pdf 4.4 mb), provides quarterly, in-depth reports on agency and transportation system performance. The purpose of the Gray Notebook is to keep WSDOT accountable to the Governor, the Legislature, Washington state citizens, and transportation organizations. more...

Annual Corridor Capacity Report (a.k.a. Congestion Report)
The Corridor Capacity Report, published each fall, informs the Legislature, stakeholders, education and research institutions, the media, communities and the public about the state of congestion and transportation capacity in Washington state. The detailed analysis in the report shows where and how much congestion occurs, and whether it has grown on state highways. The report focuses on the most traveled commute corridors around the state. There are also Semi-Annual Travel Time Trends reports published in the Gray Notebook, providing updated analysis of how economic factors are impacting congestion.
