Congestion Management Process
The Congestion Management Process (CMP) is a collaboratively developed set of objectives, performance metrics, and strategies the Sacramento region uses to monitor and manage traffic congestion on select roadways that comprise its CMP network. The Federal Highway Administration (FHWA) requires all metro regions with a population of more than 200,000 to maintain a CMP. SACOG’s CMP forms part of its Metropolitan Transportation Plan (MTP) and brings several benefits, including:
- Providing a system to quantitatively monitor the region’s progress toward MTP goals,
- Identifying and prioritizing cost-effective, multi-modal strategies to address congestion, and
- Aligning specific congestion management projects and strategies with MTP policies.
SACOG updates its CMP every four years, in alignment with its MTP-SCS updates. Additional supplemental reports may be produced during interim years, such as the 2018 report. The most recent CMP report and previous reports are provided below.
