Until further notice, the NFRMPO office is closed beginning on March 19. NFRMPO and VanGo™ staff are working remotely and are best reached via email.

PM3: System Performance

The PM3 category considers a multitude of factors related to maintaining the State’s economy and quality of life. Because the NFRMPO region currently has under 1,000,000 residents, there are a reduced number of performance measures prior to 2022.

The NFRMPO uses a three-teir grading system to measure progress: Target Indicator Positive means the State or the NFRMPO region has achieved the target based on baseline data; Target Indicator Steady means the State or the NFRMPO is making progress and is trending in the proper direction or is close to achieving a target but has not yet; and Target Indicator Negative means the target has not been achieved and not enough progress has been made.

Travel Time Reliability Index (TTRI)

Travel time reliability indexing (TTRI) is a multistep process to determine the ratio of peak travel periods to normal travel periods. The first step is to consider travel time reliability (TTR), which compares the 85th Percentile Travel Time to the 50th Percentile Travel Time. This information is collected using the National Performance Management Research Data Set (NPMRDS) and is collected in 15-minute segments between 6:00 a.m. and 8:00 p.m. A reliable travel time is considered a TTRI below 1.5.

Statewide Target:
64.0%

Trend:
Target Indicator Positive

Truck travel time reliability index (TTTRI)

Statewide Baseline:
1.37

Statewide Target:

Air Quality

The NFRMPO region is part of the Denver Metro-North Front Range 8-Hour Ozone Nonattainment Area, comprising the Northern Subarea. In addition, the cities of Fort Collins and Greeley are in attainment for Carbon Monoxide, currently in maintenance. As a result, the NFRMPO must set performance measures related to the reduction of Volatile Organic Compounds (VOCs), Carbon Monoxide (CO), and Nitrogen Oxides (NOx). These are related to projects funded through the Congestion Mitigation and Air Quality (CMAQ) program.

Volatile Organic Compounds (VOCs) Reduction

Statewide Baseline:
672.78 kg/day

Statewide Target:
105 kg/day

Trend:
Target Indicator Steady

Carbon Monoxide Reduction

Statewide Baseline:
9,998.719 kg/day

Statewide Target:
1,426 kg/day

Trend:
Target Indicator Steady

Nitrogen Oxides Reduction

Statewide Baseline:
672.780 kg/day

Statewide Target:
105 kg/day

Trend:
