This project was intended to produce an illustrative national-level management report (both print-based and web-based) of state surface transportation system performance. When fully developed, such a report would be a means for state DOTs to “Tell the Story” concerning system performance, using explicit performance measures and reflecting implementation of sound transportation performance management principles. Underlying the report would be an AASHTO-administered Comparative Performance Management (CPM) website, housing a well articulated database representing state-maintained performance statistics made available within an accepted framework. The reporting system would include visualization tools such as charts, graphs, and figures that can be used effectively to communicate and analyze information available in a CPM website. The website would enable state DOT managers to meaningfully portray their state system’s performance and learn from others’ experience.
