CONGESTION MANAGEMENT PROCESS (CMP)

Approved by the MPO Transportation Policy Committee (TPC) - February 6, 2020
Pending Federal Approval

A Congestion Management Process (CMP) is a federally required effort for metropolitan areas that are designated as Transportation Management Areas (TMAs). A TMA is a Census Bureau designated urban area with more than 200,000 residents.

This Congestion Management Process will aid the region in managing traffic in the Corpus Christi region that is projected to grow by 146% by 2045. The CMP should be updated no less frequently than the same cycle as the metropolitan transportation plan updates – about every five years. Although collecting and re-evaluating the data to produce the annual and biennial reports is not a simple task, it is necessary to complete the monitoring requirement of the CMP.

2013 CORPUS CHRISTI TRAVEL TIME & DELAY SURVEY

Published November 2013

Speed information collected in Travel Time and Delay Surveys provides an overview of the operating characteristics of functionally classified roadways as they pass through different area types in a region. In the 2013 Corpus Christi Travel Time and Delay Survey, data were collected in a fashion that also allowed for analysis of the data by peak and off-peak period and morning and afternoon travel.

PARK RD 22 ACCESS MANGEMENT STUDY

Published May 2011

The purpose of this study is to develop a comprehensive traffic simulation model using the microscopic computer simulation software, VISSIM, for the PR 22 Corridor. The models were developed to evaluate 2010 existing conditions along the corridor and analyze alternatives including the implementation of innovative signal timing and intersection designs at the intersections. The results of this study will be used as a results-oriented planning tool for the CCMPO and the City of Corpus Christi to make planning decisions regarding this corridor.

The Addendum - Alternative Analysis is a follow-up to the PR 22 Corridor Study prepared by HDR Engineering, Inc. and submitted to the Corpus Christi Metropolitan Planning Organization (MPO) in April, 2011.

2010 REGIONAL TRAVEL SPEED STUDY

Published March 2011

The purpose of the 2010 Travel Speed Study is to evaluate the transportation system and prepare a report as part of the Congestion Management Process (CMP) in compliance with the SAFETEA-LU requirements.

2010 REGIONAL TRAVEL SPEED STUDY

TRAFFIC SIGNAL COORDINATION PLANNING & DEVELOPMENT

Published September 2009

The Traffic Signal Coordination Planning & Development Part I provides a comprehensive evaluation of existing coordinated traffic signal systems within the metropolitan areas of Nueces and San Patricio Counties. The study list Short-Term and Long-Term plan recommendations to increase the mobility and reduce delay, travel time, and fuel consumption. The Traffic Signal Warrant Study determine the need for traffic signal installation at the intersections in Corpus Christi and Portland.

The Traffic Signal Warrant Study Part II includes the following intersections: US 181 Northbound Frontage Road (NBFR) and Buddy Ganem Drive/Broadway Boulevard; US 181 Southbound Frontage Road (SBFR) and Buddy Ganem Drive/Broadway Boulevard; Staples Street and La Palmea Driveway. As part of the study AM and PM peak hour turning movement counts, and 24-hour approach counts were conducted.

2006 REGIONAL TRAVEL SPEED STUDY

Published August 2007

The purpose of the 2006 Travel Speed Study is to evaluate the transportation system and prepare a report as part of the Congestion Management Process in compliance with the SAFETEA-LU requirements.

2006 REGIONAL TRAVEL SPEED STUDY

ACCESS MANAGEMENT STUDY

Published March 2007

Access management is defined as the systematic control of the location, spacing, operation and design of driveways, medians, median openings, traffic signals, interchanges, and street connections to maintain safety at a roadway’s full traffic carrying capacity. Implementing an access management program will encourage smooth and safe traffic flow on a community’s roadways and will help communities avoid some of the traffic problems caused by uncontrolled strip development.
