Programs & Services

Metropolitan Planning Organizations (MPOs) are responsible for several plans and programs per federal and state regulations.  Each plan or program serves a specific purpose and guides the MPO’s transportation planning activities.  The plans and programs contain valuable information related, but not limited, to projects, funding, air quality and public involvement.  See below links for additional information on each program or service offered by the Winston-Salem Urban Area Metropolitan Planning Organization (WSUAMPO). 

  1. Congestion Management Process (CMP)
  2. Congestion Mitigation and Air Quality (CMAQ)
  3. Surface Transportation Block Group - Direct Attributable (STBG-DA)
  4. Federal Transit Funding

The Congestion Management Process (CMP), which is required by Federal law, is a systematic approach to managing new and existing transportation systems for relieving congestion and maximizing the safety and mobility of people and goods. The measured system performance and defined strategies should be incorporated in the process of the Metropolitan transportation plan (MTP) and the transportation improvement program (TIP).  As part of the planning process, the DCHC MPO is required to develop and implement a CMP for monitoring traffic congestion, evaluating system performance, and incorporating mitigation strategies into the MTP and TIP. 

Staff is currently updating the CMP as part of the 2045 MTP Update.  This document is available for public review and will go before the TAC on November 19, 2020.
