The Congestion Mitigation and Air Quality Improvement Program:
Assessing 10 Years of Experience -- Special Report 264
After a decade of operation, Congress was interested in knowing whether the Congestion Mitigation and Air Quality Improvement (CMAQ) program had been effective and whether its projects were cost-effective relative to other strategies for reducing pollution and congestion. Reviewing both quantitative and qualitative evidence, this report presents the findings of a committee appointed by the Transportation Research Board in response to a congressional request to evaluate the program in PL105-178, the Transportation Equity Act for the 21st Century (TEA-21).
These series of briefings were for members of Congress and congressional staff only. The report was publicly released on April 18, 2002 and is available, in its entirety, on the Web site of the National Academies Press.
