Pavement and Bridge Condition Performance Measures: Massachusetts Department of Transportation (MassDOT) staff will give an overview of the Pavement and Bridge Condition Performance Measures. The Cape Cod Metropolitan Planning Organization (CCMPO) is required to adopt statewide Pavement and Bridge Condition Performance Targets for roadways on the National Highway System or to establish its own. Pavement and Bridge Condition Performance Measures are part of the overall Transportation Performance Management program, which the Federal Highway Administration (FHWA) defines as a strategic approach that uses system information to make investment and policy decision to achieve national performance goals. The CCMPO may vote to adopt statewide Pavement and Bridge Condition Performance Targets, as described by MassDOT staff, or to establish its own. – MassDOT Staff

Cape Cod Metropolitan Planning Organization members may discuss the development of the 2020 RTP. — Lev Malakhoff, Cape Cod Commission Senior Transportation Engineer

Safe Routes to School (SRTS): Massachusetts Department of Transportation (MassDOT) staff will give an overview of the SRTS program, and then specifically talk about the new SRTS Infrastructure Project Funding process. A new application solicitation period will open in late Fall. The application has been integrated into MassDOT’s online project intake tool “MaPIT,” making the application process simpler and more efficient for both applicants and reviewers. Since there has not been a solicitation period lately and the application process has been revamped significantly, it is important to spread the news and share helpful information. — Cassandra Gascon, MassDOT Office of Transportation Planning

Resilient Transportation Project Identification Tool Update: Cape Cod Commission staff, under the Unified Planning Work Program, have been working to develop an online tool that includes potential resilience projects that intersect with vulnerable transportation infrastructure. The tool will allow decision-makers to easily identify potential resilience projects that intersect planned transportation improvement projects. The tool can also assist with the prioritization of potential resilient transportation projects based on a project’s anticipated ecological benefit, transportation vulnerability, and transportation criticality. Staff will present a draft version of the online tool. Cape Cod Metropolitan Planning Organization members may ask questions and discuss the project. — Steven Tupper, Cape Cod Commission Transportation Program Manager

Reports – Massachusetts Department of Transportation: The Massachusetts Department of Transportation (MassDOT) staff will discuss with members the status of the Transportation Improvement Program (TIP) projects. The TIP is a recommended list of transportation projects to be advertised and eventually constructed using MassDOT, Federal Highway Administration and/or Federal Transit Administration funding. The Cape Cod Metropolitan Planning Organization members may ask questions and discuss the TIP projects. – MassDOT Staff

Reports – Cape Cod Regional Transit Authority: Cape Cod Regional Transit Authority (CCRTA) staff will report on recent and upcoming transportation initiatives involving the CCRTA. – CCRTA Staff
