Congestion Management Plan (CMP)

The Ocala Marion Transportation Planning Organization (TPO) is conducting a major update in 2021 to the area’s Congestion Management Plan (CMP). The CMP outlines a formalized approach to identify traffic congestion issues along the roadways and intersections of Marion County and assess recommended strategies for future improvements.

The citizens of Marion County benefit from a CMP as this document typically provides short-term, practical strategies to improving travel conditions at congestion hot spots like intersections or interchange areas. The CMP is also a resource to inform state and local officials of the highest priorities for improving congestion in our community.

Originally developed in 2011, the TPO will revise the CMP in close collaboration with elected leaders, technical staff, stakeholders and the citizens of Marion County. A CMP is required by Florida Statutes. Pending the outcome of the 2020 Census, the TPO may also be required by federal law to maintain an up-to-date CMP document.
