Transportation Improvement Program
Congestion Mitigation Air Quality Program (CMAQ)

The federal Congestion Mitigation and Air Quality Program (CMAQ) provides funds for transportation projects or programs that will contribute to attainment or maintenance of the national ambient air quality standards (NAAQS) for ozone, carbon monoxide (CO), and particulate matter (PM).

The Federal Highway Administration recognizes SPC’s CMAQ process as a national best practice. The CMAQ process reflects the policy goals from Mapping the Future: The Southwestern PA Plan and was used to develop the draft CMAQ Program for the 2017-2020 TIP with the assistance of SPC’s regional CMAQ Evaluation Committee (CEC).

CMAQ Meeting at SPC 2015
2015 CMAQ Meeting at SPC

The CEC reviewed over 30 project applications requesting CMAQ funds and recommended a priority ranking of the candidate projects to be considered in the development of the CMAQ Program for the 2017-2020 TIP.  Working with the CMAQ project sponsors and funding agencies, SPC actively monitors, tracks and evaluates the delivery status of CMAQ-funded projects on an ongoing basis.  CMAQ projects worth over $20 million were delivered in 2015.

A sample of projects with funding through the CMAQ Program in the 2017-2020 TIP includes:

  • Traffic Signal Upgrades in Downtown Pittsburgh and in communities throughout the region
  • Purchase of replacement buses for  the Port Authority  of Allegheny County and Beaver County Transit Authority
  • Adaptive Traffic Signal Systems in several major corridors in the region
  • Bike racks for Mid-Mon Valley Transit Authority buses
  • Commuter marketing and outreach through the region’s three TMAs: the Airport Corridor Transportation Association, Oakland Transportation Management Association and Pittsburgh Downtown Partnership
  • Expansion of park-n-ride facilities in the region
  • Route 837 (East Carson St.) safety improvements in Pittsburgh’s South Side neighborhood
