"The objectives of this research were four-fold:
1. Move the conversation of national transportation performance measures and a performance-based planning and programming process from that of a conceptual framework to realistic examples relating national-level measures to the state and regional level.
2. Examine how state DOTs could feasibly work with regional and local stakeholders in relating national transportation performance measures to the state and local level using real-world examples in the U.S.
3. Document potential processes for linking national transportation performance measures to the state and local level for others to use.
4. Identify barriers and obstacles to integrating performance measures into the planning and programming process. Document strategies used to successfully overcome barriers, and additional strategies that might be considered in the future."
