Localized Congestion Mitigation Programs Guide
This guide, recently released by the U.S. Federal Highway Administration’s (FHWA) Office of Operations, is designed to assist state and local transportation professionals in developing a local congestion mitigation program that employs localized and low-cost bottleneck improvements. A local congestion mitigation program helps identify and alleviate congestion at specific locations that experience recurring congestion or locations that are congested on a regular basis. The guide reviews several templates, many already in use by other transportation agencies, for developing a successful local congestion mitigation program.
