    • 9:00am TRB: One Vision, Many Goals, Many Objectives...Explore How To Put It All Together In Your Long Range Plans, Part 19:00am - 12:15pm Rue Reolon
      Type: Workshop
      Description: MAP-21 and the FAST Act have expanded the number of performance-based planning requirements for state and regional transportation agencies. Compliance with Federal rules is but one consideration in the development of statewide and regional plans. Plans must continue to reflect the values and priorities of each agency and the citizens and stakeholders of each state. For those responsible for developing policy and investment plans, the challenge is how to best integrate all of these different plans while maintaining a consistent and coherent message. With the recent completion of the Federal Rulemaking, requirements and deadlines are now set. The peer exchange will be an opportunity for practitioners to share lessons learned and compare strategies for moving forward. In designing the format of this peer exchange, our intent is to maximize the amount of time allowed for small group and facilitated large group discussion.

The workshop will be broken up into three separate sessions focusing TAM, TPM and the FHWA Capability Maturity Model. This workshop will showcase several of the tools states are using as they work to implement TPM/TAM as emphasized by MAP-21 and the FAST Act.

      Type: Technical Session
      Presentations:
      Utilizing Toll Revenues and Value Capture to Fund Multimodal Improvements
      Description: With limited funding opportunities to sustain a transportation system over its life cycle, states and local governments wish to better capture the economic value added to real estate and commerce from publicly funded transportation improvements. Value capture is not a new concept, but as many states and local governments struggle to provide transportation improvements it may become a more widely used funding tool. This session will explore first-hand experiences with value capture approaches.

      Tolling in Washington State
      Georgia Express Lanes
      Managed Lanes

This panel discussion will focus on answering questions such as: What is the state of practice in priced managed lanes? What motivates agencies to explore this pricing strategy? How does an agency select a pricing approach? What are lessons learned from agencies experienced with priced managed lanes?

      Description: While state DOTs are in the midst of implementing many of the new and updated provisions of the FAST Act (e.g., State Freight Plans, Asset Management Plans and performance management), the Trump Administration has indicated significant changes and a new direction when it comes to federal transportation policy. As part of the potential infrastructure package, the Administration is focusing on the use of federal incentives to leverage non-federal investments such as state/local funding and private capital, and rolling back regulations to streamline program and project delivery. This plenary session will examine the potential impacts of the Administration's agenda to national and state transportation policy both in the short- and long-term, and help frame the individual meetings of the planning, performance-based management, and transportation finance policy committees taking place afterward.
