MAP-21 performance management


In July 2012, the Moving Ahead for Progress in the 21st Century Act ( MAP-21 ) became law. The primary objectives of MAP-21 are to increase the transparency and accountability related to states' investment of federal taxpayer dollars into transportation infrastructure and services nationwide, and to ensure that states distribute funds to transportation projects that collectively make progress toward the achievement of national goals. MAP-21 aims to achieve set objectives by assessing the performance of state transportation systems compared to national goals and enforcing minimum requirements. 

The new transportation rules will require state DOTs to measure and report performance in the following areas: safety, pavement and bridge, system performance/congestion, freight movement, and congestion mitigation and air quality (CMAQ).


MAP-21 Overview:

MAP-21 Overview WSDOT folio 11" x 17" (pdf 348kb) - April 2015 
Alternate 8-1/2" x 11" format (pdf 414kb) 
This folio provides general information about proposed rules, measurement and reporting requirements, and implementation timelines. Washington State's collaboration structure and process is described in the Collaboration MAP-21 WSDOT folio (pdf 881kb) . Additional information and contacts for measuring current performance in Washington State is available in the Data Contact MAP-21 WSDOT folio (pdf 784kb) .   

In September 2016, WSDOT responded to a request from the Federal Highway Administration (FHWA) for an Initial State Performance Report for the Moving Ahead for Progress in the 21st Century Act. The Initial State Performance Report (pdf 2,625kb) covers issues ranging from the state asset management plan to freight bottlenecks.

The following is a directory of relevant documents for specific performance management programs, organized by national performance goals. Refer to the folio printing instructions (pdf 230kb)  for step-by-step instructions on how to print these folios.
