Performance Targets and Indicators

A requirement of MPOs that was established in the "Moving Ahead for Progress in the 21st Century" Act (MAP-21) and continued in the "Fixing America's Surface Transportation" (FAST) Act was the establishment and tracking of performance targets on a wide range of transportation measures.  The Commission has established performance targets in many areas.

Transit Asset Management (TAM) Performance Targets

The Commission worked with Shoreline Metro to establish a TAM plan (including TAM performance targets) for the transit operation.  Since Shoreline Metro is the only transit operator in the metropolitan planning area, the plan and performance targets also apply to the MPO. The Sheboygan Transit Commission approved the plan and targets for Shoreline Metro on August 16, 2022. The Sheboygan MPO Technical and Policy Advisory Committees recommended approval of the targets at their September 8, 2022 joint meeting, and the Commission approved these targets for the MPO at its meeting on September 9, 2022. 

Information regarding the TAM performance targets can be found below:

Highway Safety Improvement Program (HSIP) Performance Targets

The Commission worked with WisDOT staff to update HSIP performance targets for the Sheboygan Metropolitan Planning Area.  Some effort went into examination of crash data within the metropolitan planning area in 2022 in order to determine where the area stood in comparison with statewide averages.  Since four of the five targets being established were below statewide averages applied to the vehicle miles traveled (VMT) of the metropolitan planning area (as five year averages over the period from 2017 through 2021), the MPO decided to support the state targets as opposed to setting independent targets. In addition, since non-motorized fatalities and serious injuries were higher than the statewide average, the Commission recommended greater education of motorists and pedestrians in the Sheboygan Metropolitan Planning Area, along with encouraging the communities in the Sheboygan Metropolitan Planning Area to install protected bike lanes to make bicyclists and pedestrians feel safer. Targets are required in the following areas: average annual fatalities; the average annual fatality rate; average annual serious injuries; the average annual serious injury rate; and average annual non-motorized fatalities and serious injuries.  Rates are determined per 100 million VMT. Targets were set for 2023, and at the statewide level include 2 percent reductions in average annual fatalities, the average annual fatality rate, average annual serious injuries, the average annual serious injury rate, and in average annual non-motorized fatalities and serious injuries.  The Sheboygan MPO Technical and Policy Advisory Committees recommended approval of supporting WisDOT's statewide targets at their October 27, 2022, joint meeting, and the Commission approved support of WisDOT's statewide targets for the MPO at a meeting of its Executive Committee on October 28, 2022.

PM2 & PM3 Performance Targets

Other performance targets have been established in 2018 in areas such as: pavement condition, bridge condition, and emission reductions associated with Congestion Mitigation and Air Quality (CMAQ) improvement program projects.  Pavement and bridge condition targets only apply to the National Highway System (NHS), with conditions on Interstate highways and other NHS highways typically reported separately.

Public Transportation Agency Safety Plan (PTASP) Performance Targets

The Commission worked with Shoreline Metro (the only transit operator in the Sheboygan Metropolitan Planning Area) extensively through much of 2022 to develop the PTASP and targets.  Shoreline Metro's Safety Advisory Committee recomended approval  of the PTASP and Tragets Update on November 19, 2022. The Sheboygan Transit Commission approved the PTASP and targets for Shoreline Metro on November 29, 2022.  The PTASP has been submitted to staff in WisDOT's Transit Section and to FTA Region 5. The Sheboygan MPO Technical and Policy Advisory Committees recommended approval of the PTASP and its targets at their joint meeting on December 8, 2022, and the Commission approved the PTASP and its targets for the MPO at its meeting on December 9, 2022.

Information regarding the PTASP performance targets can be found below:

2021 Transportation System Performance Indicators Report

The Commission prepared the 2021 Transportation System Performance Indicators report in late 2021 and early 2022.  The Sheboygan MPO Technical and Policy Advisory Committees reviewed this report at their joint meeting on January 27, 2022.
