Ohio Transportation Planning Conference July 16, 2014
What is NOACA … and what does it do? NOACA is the federally designated metropolitan planning organization (MPO) for northeast Ohio Conducts multi-modal transportation & environmental planning for a five-county region Determines how federal transportation dollars are spent Conducts transportation-related air quality planning and public education activities Functions as the “areawide” water quality planning agency for the region
Why is NOACA initiating performance planning? To ensure that the needs of the region are met though effective collaboration and resource allocation Improved project decision-making Increased accountability and transparency Communicate the region’s needs when competing for limited resources Promote coordination with both internal and external stakeholders and oversight agencies Lastly, because we are required to………
MAP-21 MPO Performance Planning Requirements DOT consultation and coordination with MPOs on the establishment of performance measures for: Pavement condition on the Interstate System and NHS Performance of the Interstate System and NHS Bridge condition on the NHS Fatalities and serious injuries on all public roads Traffic congestion On-road mobile source emissions Freight movement on the NHS
MAP-21 MPO Performance Planning Requirements MPO targets established within 180 days of ODOT and public transportation providers target setting MPO plans requiring ODOT and NOACA performance targets: NOACA long-range transportation plan NOACA Transportation Improvement Program (TIP) Performance plans under the Congestion Mitigation and Air Quality (CMAQ) program Certification of inclusion of a performance-based approach for MPOs that serve a TMA Failure of certification, USDOT may withhold up to 20% of the funds attributable to the metropolitan planning area
Elements of Performance Based Planning Planning Strategic Direction Data Analysis Programming Investment Plan Resource Allocation Program Projects Implementation and Evaluation Monitor / Evaluate Report Where are we at in the process?
Planning for Better Planning NOACA has initiated two key planning efforts that are critical to long-term performance planning 1. NOACA Regional Strategic Plan 2. Transportation Asset Management Plan These initiatives, in harmony with MAP-21 performance requirements, will ensure a comprehensive approach to long-term performance planning for the region
Regional Strategic Plan Initiated in July 2012, in progress Defines direction of the agency for the future Not “who we are” but “who we want to be” Vision and Goals Specific strategies for resource allocation Engages public and civic leaders across the region
Regional Strategic Plan NOACA Board has adopted a unified vision: NOACA will STRENGTHEN regional cohesion, PRESERVE existing infrastructure, and BUILD a sustainable multimodal transportation system to SUPPORT economic development and ENHANCE quality of life in Northeast Ohio. Vision lends itself naturally to five adopted goals: 1. STRENGTHEN regional cohesion 2. PRESERVE existing infrastructure 3. BUILD a sustainable multimodal transportation system 4. SUPPORT economic development 5. ENHANCE quality of life in Northeast Ohio
NOACA ODOT (Access Ohio 2040) US DOT (MAP- 21) Strengthen Regional Cohesion Preserve Existing Infrastructure PreservationInfrastructure Condition Build a Sustainable Multimodal Transportation System Mobility and EfficiencyCongestion Reduction Accessibility and ConnectivitySystem Reliability Support Economic Development Economic Development Freight Movement and Economic Vitality Reduced Project Delivery Delays Enhance Quality of Life SafetyEnvironmental Sustainability StewardshipSafety Goal alignment - Important that NOACA’s goals align with and support the goals of our state and federal partners Regional Strategic Plan
Implemented through strategies developed to guide the agency and inform decision-making for goal achievement Develop performance criteria systems Leverage strong relationships Act as a regional facilitator Develop fiscal policies Align NOACA priorities Comprehensive asset management plan will serve as a primary tool for implementation Regional Strategic Plan
What is Transportation Asset Management? Strategic and systematic framework for making cost- effective decisions about allocating resources and managing infrastructure. Focused on engineering and economic analysis considering the full life-cycle cost of funding decisions
Tactical & proactive, places a premium on data, information and collaboration. A long term and comprehensive view of infrastructure performance and cost. An explicit, visible, and transparent approach requiring effective communication among all stakeholders. Investment choices that are policy driven with trade-offs among competing priorities. What is Transportation Asset Management?
Why Do We Need Asset Management? Critical component for successful long-term performance planning Valuable assets are not receiving the attention or funding needed to achieve a state of good repair. Allocates funding where it will provide the greatest return. Improves cost-effectiveness, communication, accountability and credibility.
NOACA Area Assets: 670,795,906 sq.ft., of federal aid roadways 1,755 lane miles of freeways 5,547 lane miles of urban roads 1,381 lane miles of rural roads 55 miles of bike lanes 260 miles of shared use paths 3,053 bridges Why Do We Need Asset Management?
Asset Management Process Inventory and condition assessment Required level of service/performance targets Lifecycle cost considerations Risk management analysis Investment strategies NOACA/Stakeholder Collaboration
Linking NOACA Planning Initiatives Based on a well-defined Vision, policy goals and objectives Based on quality data and reliable management systems Defines system performance measures for short and long-term strategic management Creates accountability through performance measurement of impacts and effectiveness Rooted together to direct a comprehensive approach to transportation planning
Advancing future elements Programming – What will it take? Resource allocation vs. level of performance Investment policies Long-range Transportation Plan Transportation Improvement Program Implementation and Evaluation – How did we do? Monitor progress against measures – Are we achieving our goals? Evaluate effectiveness – Is the strategic direction still valid? Report – Communicate performance and obtain feedback
