Performance Measures

The Federal Highway Administration has established three transportation performance measures:

  • Safety & Transit Asset Management
  • Highway Infrastructure Condition
  • Highway System Performance

In cooperation with the Virginia Department of Transportation (VDOT), FAMPO follows a performance-based planning approach established by the Federal Highway Administration (FHWA). Performance-Based Planning and Programming (PBPP) is a results-driven process based on data collection, monitoring and evaluation. It creates greater transparency and efficiency in the decision-making process and provides more opportunities for public involvement in how federal transportation funds are spent.

PBPP is part of the Federal Highway Program known as Transportation Performance Management (TPM). TPM is a set of national goals and targets mandated through the Moving Ahead for Progress in the 21st Century Act (MAP-21), signed into law in 2012; and the Fixing America’s Surface Transportation (FAST) ACT, signed in 2015, and implemented through the PBPP process to help move our national infrastructure in the right direction.
