About the Congestion Management Process

As the federally designated Metropolitan Planning Organization (MPO) for the central Puget Sound region, PSRC is required by federal law to maintain a Congestion Management Process (CMP). A CMP is a systematic process for managing congestion that provides information on multimodal transportation system performance and on alternative strategies to alleviate congestion and enhance the mobility of persons and goods to levels that meet state and local needs.

PSRC is working with local and state agencies to maintain the CMP. This includes the identification of multimodal system performance data that can be used to understand existing and future conditions. Such data can assist planners in developing strategies that most efficiently provide mobility options.
