Measuring Our Progress
Tri-County conducts performance-based planning and programming by tracking performance measures, setting data-driven targets for each measure, and selecting projects to help meet those targets to improve our region's transportation system.
The Moving Ahead for Progress in the 21st Century Act (MAP-21), which was signed into law in 2012, included several provisions that have shifted the focus of the Federal surface transportation program toward the achievement of performance outcomes. The current surface transportation bill, Fixing America's Surface Transportation (FAST) Act, was signed in 2015 and built on MAP-21 and provided long-term funding certainty for surface transportation infrastructure planning and investment.
In accordance with the surface transportation legislation, Tri-County is coordinating with our local, state, and federal partners to implement performance based planning and programming in our region. This page will be updated regularly to reflect developments in the process.
