Implementing performance targets setting, along with asset management, provides:
For each of the performance areas, the progress achieved towards meeting the targets are detailed in the tables below.
For all measures, the 2020 Actuals are based on the best available data, as of June 2020, which is the mid-point of the performance period, therefore, the conditions reported may contain 2019 or 2018 data sets.
The performance measure targets and reporting are draft recommendations. Over the next two months, staff will continue its data analysis. As a result, the recommendations are subject to change. During this time, H-GAC staff will work with local governments, Subcommittees, the Transportation Advisory Committee (TAC) and the Transportation Policy Council (TPC) to finalize the draft targets and reports.
The Transportation Policy Council (TPC) approved a resolution to support the State’s adopted safety targets for the five performance measures. Targets represent a two percent (2%) reduction from the trend line projection in the five (5) safety performance measures for the period from 2017 to 2022.
For the purposes of short-term target setting, the targets were set to reflect the probable amount of fatalities and serious injuries. However, the trends in fatalities and crashes do not reflect the intent and commitment of the TPC to improve traffic safety in the Houston-Galveston region and significantly reduce fatalities and serious injuries.
H-GAC has committed to participate in advancing crash reduction strategies through the Regional Safety Plan and will annually assess progress on safety performance measures.
