The Boston Region MPO Congestion Management Committee was formed on January 19, 2012, to facilitate the development and implementation of the MPO’s Congestion Management Process (CMP). The Committee recommends to policy-makers projects and programs that reduce congestion and improve mobility, safety, and efficiency. It will ensure that the appropriate congestion mitigation strategies are represented in the Unified Planning Work Program, Transportation Improvement Program, and Long-Range Transportation Plan, thus integrating the CMP with the MPO’s certification documents.
The Committee currently consists of representatives from the following eight MPO member entities:
- City of Everett (At-Large City), Chair
- City of Boston
- Town of Lexington (At-Large Town)
- North Suburban Planning Council (City of Woburn)
- MassDOT Highway Division
- Regional Transportation Advisory Council (RTAC)
