FAST Act Performance Data

National Performance Measures (NPM)

Under the latest Federal transportation funding authorization bill, the 2015 Fixing America’s Surface Transportation (FAST) Act, each state is required to set targets for and report on the progress of performance metrics related to the surface transportation system of the U.S. Under this legislation, new national performance data has been established to give decision makers on a federal level an indication of the condition and operation of the National Highway System (NHS).

The data is divided into three key goal areas, including:

NPM Goal Areas


NPM Dashboards

Safety (targets reported yearly)

  • Fatalities & Fatality Rate
  • Serious Injuries & Serious Injury Rate
  • Fatalities & Serious Injuries involving Vulnerable Users
Infrastructure Condition (targets reported biennially)
  • Condition of Interstate Pavement
  • Condition of National Highway System Pavement
  • Condition of National Highway System Bridges
System Performance (targets reported biennially)
  • Reliable Travel on the Interstate
  • Reliable Travel on the National Highway System
  • Interstate Freight Travel Reliability
  • Congestion and Multimodal Travel (applicable urban areas only)
  • Congestion Mitigation and Air Quality Program Performance

In addition to reporting about this data, FAST Act requires states to produce plans related to Asset Management, Transit Asset Management, and Freight Movement in the state. These metrics and plans have helped inform CDOT’s Your Transportation Priorities long range plan, a vision for transportation in Colorado.
