Project: Using the NJCMS & PDA Suite to Rate Planned Projects
Lead Agency: NJDOT
Supporting Agency: N/A
PDA Suite Tools Used: Congestion Scan
Description: The New Jersey Department of Transportation used Congestion Scan (specifically, the Travel Time Indices) in conjunction with performance measures generated by their Congestion Management System (CMS-21) to rate about 50 congestion relief-related projects, to help determine which projects the Department will fund for the next 5 to 10 years.
Highlights: NJDOT noted that having complementary measures (PDA Suite/NJCMS) helped calculate a better overall priority score, and that PDA Suite will be used to evaluate projects before, during and after construction to quantify congestion improvement.
