Congestion Management Process (CMP)
The vision of the CAMPO area Congestion Management Process is to promote the efficient use of the existing and future regional transportation system. The primary goals of the CMP are to manage congestion and enhance air quality through the promotion and coordination of congestion reduction strategies.
The Congestion Management Process (CMP) is the program where congestion in the multi-modal, regional transportation system is monitored, evaluated, and managed. The intent of the CMP is to protect the region's investments in, and improve the effectiveness of, the existing and future transportation networks

Management & Operations
M&O is an integrated approach to optimize the performance of existing and programmed infrastructure through the implementation of multimodal, intermodal, and often cross-jurisdictional systems, services and projects. This includes regional operations collaboration and coordination activities between transportation, public safety agencies and other potential stakeholders.
M&O has been integrated into the CAMPO CMP through participation in several stakeholder groups, such as ITS operations, the Bottleneck Study Committee, and the AIMHigh Team. CAMPO also conducts yearly Management & Operations Workshops to share local and national information on operations management and congestion management. Information from the most recent workshop is provided below.

Bottleneck Study Committee
The Bottleneck Study Committee identifies, analyzes and implements operational improvements throughout the CAMPO region. The committee is coordinated by TxDOT and consists of representatives from local jurisdictions and CAMPO. The committee meets monthly to identify needs, to discuss results of analyses, and to develop solutions for specific bottleneck locations.
Urban Mobility Report
Every year the Texas Transportation Institute studies congestion in the urbanized areas of cities throughout the country. Of all the medium-sized cities studied, Austin had some of the highest levels of congestion and the highest levels of operations treatments which reduce congestion. Click here to review the report.
