MAP-21 Moving Ahead for Progress in the 21st Century


MAP-21: Moving Ahead for Progress in the 21st Century

On July 6, 2012  President Obama signed MAP-21, the Moving Ahead for Progress in the 21st Century Act (P.L. 112-141), into law.  This bill for the first time introduced performance measures into transportation policy, aiming to include real world data in the planning and prioritizing of our nation’s transportation investment needs.  The bill expired on September 30, 2014, but Congress has authorized several extensions while a full reauthorization bill is debated.  The implementation of MAP-21 continues to unfold, with the Federal Highway Administration releasing a number of related proposed rulemakings in 2014 and 2015.  Caltrans is taking an active role in both the reauthorization and implementation processes, addressing and advocating for California’s unique issues and goals.
