Measuring Improvements in the Movement of Highway and Intermodal Freight
REPORT: Act 51 White Paper – State Trunklines: Performance Measures
SPONSORS: Michigan Department of Transportation
AUTHORS: Act 51 Transportation Funding Study Committee
This White Paper summarizes Michigan DOT’s strategic objectives and highway performance measures as identified in the Michigan DOT’s FY 2000 budget. There was not a specific focus on freight movement.
PERFORMANCE MEASURES PRESENTED:
Increase the percent of miles of state trunklines with surface condition classified as good
Increase the number of trunkline bridges rated as good
Reduce the percent of state trunklines experiencing congested traffic flow
Reduce the rate of fatal accidents
These are general highway-system measures. They have some relevance to freight movement, as do all general measures of highway performance, but they lack a freight focus.
