The primary purpose of the 2010 Travel Speed Study is to evaluate the transportation system and prepare a report as part of the Congestion Management Process (CMP) in compliance with the SAFETEA-LU requirements. The secondary purpose of the study was to identify trends in congestion and travel time in order to identify problem locations for possible improvements. This year, the relative pavement roughness was also evaluated to identify the pavement segments with the worst roughness within the MPO boundaries. A congestion mitigation plan will be developed in the next phase of this study after review of the congestion results by Corpus Christi MPO.
