Congestion Management Process

Traffic congestion impacts the mobility of people and goods in Northern Colorado, which affects quality of life and economic growth in the region. The NFRMPO maintains the federally required Congestion Management Process (CMP) to improve transportation system reliability, safety, and performance.

2023 Congestion Management Process2023 CMP 
The 2023 CMP identifies an objectives-driven, performance-based process to manage regional transportation congestion. The CMP includes congestion-related goals, objectives, and performance measures. In 2018, congestion cost Americans $87 Billion and an average of 97 hours. Congestion also wastes billions of gallons of fuel, releasing billions of pounds of carbon dioxide into the atmosphere, annually. The CMP seeks to manage congestion on the Regionally Significant Corridors (RSCs) through a variety of region- and corridor-specific strategies.
