Transportation Performance:

HPMS (Highway Perfomance Monitoring System)

Who are we?

HPMS supports UDOT and municipalities within the State of Utah delivering a quality inventory of specific roadway items on our roads  in a cost effective and timely manner. 
 We work with the Federal Highways Administration (FHWA) in reporting the  annual  Certified Public Road Mileage and the Highway Performance Monitoring System (HPMS) data.
 The Purpose of the annual HPMS submittal is to provide data that reflects the extent, condition, performance, use, and operating characteristics of the Nation's and the State's highways and roadways. This data is used to assess the highway system performance under the Federal Highway Administration strategic planning process and for apportioning Federal-aid funds to all states. In addition, the HPMS serves the needs of the States, Metropolitan Organizations and local governments in assessing the highway condition, performance, air quality trends, and future investment requirements.

2017 Accomplishments

Data quality is affected by the way data is entered, stored and managed. Data quality assurance (DQA) is the process of verifying the reliability and effectiveness of data.

We have completed the DQA for the following FHWA Data Inventory Item's (reported by data rows) out of 80:
FHWA Functional Classification: 106373
Facility: 106055
County: 2041
Urban-Rural Designation: 106671
Through Lanes: 3080
Access Control: 1453

Our First and most important task is to deliver the Annual Public Road Mileage report to the Director of the Utah Department of Transportation and the Governor of the State of Utah.
Secondary and only by a slight measure is to ensure the timeliness and quality of the Roadway Inventory. Interstate roadway Pavement elements must be reported as a final inventory list to FHWA no later than April 15th. The Off-System roadways and additional inventory items must be reported by June 15th.
