Federal Highway Safety Performance Measure (PM2, PM3, TAM, and Transit Safety) Targets Approved for 2023
Federal legislation requires state DOTs and MPOs to establish targets for three highway performance measures: Highway Safety (PM1), Pavement and Bridge Condition (PM2), and System Performance (PM3). IDOT sets annual targets for PM2 and PM3 every year. MPOs have 180 days after DOTs adopt statewide targets to accept the DOT’s targets or to set their own targets for the metropolitan planning area (MPA). IDOT evaluates progress toward the targets every year for PM1 and every two years for PM2 and PM3. Transit Asset Management (TAM) and Transit Safety targets are set by the transit agency (Champaign-Urbana Metro Transit District) in coordination with the Metropolitan Planning Organization (CUUATS) annually.
The suggested PM2, PM3, TAM, and Transit Safety targets were presented and approved at the CUUATS Technical Committee meeting on Wednesday February 1 and the CUUATS Policy Committee meeting Wednesday February 8. PM2 and PM3 targets will follow IDOT targets, and the TAM and Transit Safety targets presented by MTD were approved as presented unanimously.
