Background: The Intermodal Surface Transportation Efficiency Act of 1991 (ISTEA), the Clean Air Act Amendments of 1990 (CAAA), the Transportation Equity Act for the 21st Century (TEA-21) and the 2005 Safe, Accountable, Flexible, Efficient Transportation Equity Act-Legacy for Users (SAFETEA-LU) required broad changes in transportation planning and development processes throughout the United States. Successive federal authorizations have resulted in an evolution of the roles and responsibilities of state departments of transportation and metropolitan planning organizations (MPOs) with regard to their obligations related to planning, programming, and integrating transportation systems.  To meet new requirements, transportation agencies need new and enhanced technical and policy tools to support their planning processes and decisionmaking systems.  The AASHTO Standing Committee on Planning established NCHRP 08-36 to facilitate the acelerated development of new technical tools, methods, and procedures designed to accurately assess the implications and impacts of a variety of transportation options, changes in regulatory requirements (e.g., changing air quality conformity regulations), or changes required as a result of court decisions.  There is a continuing need to have a quick-response research and development capability for the states to address near-term improvements in statewide and metropolitan transportation planning and project development processes.

Objective: The objective of this project is to establish a flexible, ongoing program of quick-response research designed to develop improvements to the analytical methods, decision-support tools, procedures, and techniques employed by practitioners to support statewide and metropolitan transportation planning, programming, and development.
