2014 Planning Process Review
In response to provisions in the Moving Ahead for Progress in the 21st Century (MAP-21) federal transportation legislation, the Federal Highway Administration (FHWA) and PennDOT will now conduct transportation “planning process reviews” every four years for all medium/small-sized MPOs.
The reviews are intended to help MPOs comply with all federal and state transportation planning requirements. The planning process review is similar to the formal certification review process conducted for large MPOs (over 200,000 in population).
The CCMPO was selected for the first planning process review in Pennsylvania in order to pilot the procedures to be used in future reviews. In spring 2014, FHWA and the PennDOT Central Office completed a desk review of documents and processes. In July, an on-site field review meeting was held with FHWA, PennDOT Central and District 2-0 Offices, and CCMPO and CATA staff.
As indicated in the final report, FHWA and PennDOT found that the CCMPO's planning process fully complies with the spirit and intent of metropolitan transportation planning laws and regulations, and is in compliance with Title 23, United States Code (USC), Section 134.
