The Congestion Management Process (CMP) provides the Des Moines Area MPO and its members governments with a process for the effective integrated management and operation of the multimodal transportation system. This strategy is based on a cooperatively developed and implemented metropolitan-wide strategy for new and existing transportation facilities. Currently, in the MPO area, congestion is not a major issue at the present time. The objective of this document is to stay ahead of any potential problems with the network so that the system continues to operate effectively. The full process is linked below.
