Performance Measures

As part of the 2011-2035 Regional Transportation Systems Plan (RTSP), a number of performance indicators were identified to track progress in meeting the goals and objectives specified in the long-range plan. These indicators were further refined in the update of the RTSP for years 2015-2035 and 2019-2043, in part due to issues with data availability. A number of the indicators were modified to align with the performance measures that were proposed to be introduced as part of MAP-21 (Moving Ahead for Progress in the 21st Century – the federal surface transportation legislation passed in 2012). In May 2017 the Federal Highway Administration (FHWA) and Federal Transit Administration (FTA) issued the final rules on the federal performance measures to be tracked by the State’s Department of Transportation, the Transit Districts and the Metropolitan Planning Organizations in the country. 

The federal performance measures are shown below and will be reported in updates to the SKATS RTSP beginning in 2019.

Performance Indicators from the 2019-2043 RTSP

  1. Preserve the Existing System
  2. Minimize the Number of Fatalities, Injuries and Collisions on the Regional System
  3. Provide a Multi-Modal System
  4. Maximize the Efficient Use of the Existing System
  5. Reduce the Impact to the Environment and Natural Systems
  6. Limit the Increase in Congestion during the Peak Hours along the Regional Corridors

Federal Performance Measures

Road Related Performance Measures

Safety on Roads

  1. Number of Roadway Fatalities
  2. Number of Roadway Serious Injuries
  3. Roadway Fatalities per Vehicle Miles Traveled (i.e., fatality rate)
  4. Roadway Serious Injuries per Vehicle Miles Traveled (i.e., serious injury rate)
  5. Combined Number of Non-Motorized Fatalities and Non-Motorized Serious Injuries

SKATS is supporting the state-wide targets set by ODOT. ODOT has set targets for the next five years, but will be updated as necessary.
