Performance Measures Dashboard

MPO-Performance-Measures MPO Performance Measures

The Sarasota/Manatee Metropolitan Organization (MPO) has unveiled its newly revamped Performance Measures Dashboard. The Dashboard underwent a complete overhaul to make the data and information more user friendly, aesthetically pleasing, and generally easier for the public to digest. To view the new Dashboard click here. It can also be found on the MyMPO.org dropdown menu at P>Performance Measures.

The Fixing America’s Surface Transportation (FAST) Act reinforced prior transportation-centric legislation to require State Department of Transportations (DOTs) to evaluate, track, and assess certain performance measures. The FAST Act formally solidified performance-based planning as the standard for Metropolitan Planning Organizations. The Sarasota/Manatee MPO uses performance measures to assess and organize goals, objectives, and priorities in the 2045 Long Range Transportation Plan (LRTP). Each chapter of the LRTP includes goals and objectives to improve those performance measures. These performance measures are:

To make the performance measures more accessible to the public, the Performance Measures Dashboard was remodeled. Each performance measure has its own page with the most relevant data points illustrated in an approachable way. These pages are introduced with a quick infographic. The content of these graphics, long range objectives and select data, is intended to be consumed in a minute or less. The pages also include charts, scorecards, and interactive maps using GIS WebApps, which allows for data exploration in the region.

Of course, a deep, technical review of each performance measure is still available on MyMPO.org by downloading a copy of the 2045 Long Range Transportation Plan. It is more crucial than ever to make data-driven decisions to improve the region, and the redesigned Performance Measures Dashboard aims to do just that.

Safety Performance in Sarasota and Manatee Counties, 2021

20181025_114322 FDOT and MPO conduct Road Safety Assessments

Moving Ahead for Progress in the 21st Century (MAP-21) and Fixing America’s Surface Transportation (FAST) Act legislation require metropolitan planning organizations (MPOs) to use outcome-based planning for five safety measures:

  • Number of fatalities
  • Rate of fatalities
  • Number of serious injuries
  • Rate of serious injuries
  • Number of non-motorized fatalities and non-motorized serious injuries

The MPO adopted their first targets for the 2014-2018 five-year rolling average on January 22, 2018. The second targets for 2015-2019 five-year rolling average were adopted on September 24, 2018 where realistic, attainable safety performance targets were set based on historical statistics and projected trends. Additionally, Vision Zero was adopted as a long term goal to be reached by 2045.

The third targets for the 2016-2020 five year rolling average were adopted on January 27, 2020. The actual numbers were higher than originally projected. The MPO Board adopted the same targets as 2015-2019 for number of fatalities and number of serious injuries while using the actual numbers for 2016-2020 for the remaining targets as new numbers.

The unvalidated 2020 data is now available. Based on this data, the actual numbers are once again higher than originally projected and the MPO will not meet some of the adopted 2016-2020 safety targets. The 2020 data will be validated Summer of 2020.

Evaluating how each performance measure has trended, allows the MPO to make a more informed decision in establishing 2017-2021 targets as well as future year targets.

MPOs must set 2017-2021 targets for each of the five Safety Performance Measures by February 27, 2021.

Driving Fatalities Down to Zero in Sarasota and Manatee Counties

20181025_090549 MPO Staff and partners inspect the intersection of 53rd and US 41 during a road safety audit.

Moving Ahead for Progress in the 21st Century (MAP-21) and Fixing America’s Surface Transportation (FAST) Act legislation require metropolitan planning organizations (MPOs) to use outcome-based planning for five safety measures:

  • Number of fatalities
  • Rate of fatalities
  • Number of serious injuries
  • Rate of serious injuries
  • Number of non-motorized fatalities and non-motorized serious injuries

The MPO adopted their first targets for the 2014-2018 five-year rolling average on January 22, 2018. These first targets were based on actual data from 2012 to 2016. The 2018 crash data is available and has been used to evaluate and compare the adopted targets with the actual numbers.

The second targets for 2015-2019 five-year rolling average were adopted on September 24, 2018 where realistic, attainable safety performance targets were set based on historical statistics and projected trends. The unvalidated 2019 data is now available. Based on this data, the actual numbers are higher than originally projected and the MPO will not meet some of the adopted 2015-2019 safety targets. The 2019 data will be validated Summer of 2020.

Evaluating how each performance measure has trended, allows the MPO to make a more informed decision in establishing 2016-2020 targets as well as future year targets. This evaluation helps in identifying areas for focused attention to allocate resources and funding to make the transportation system safer.

MPOs must set targets for each of the five Safety Performance Measures by February 27, 2020.
