As a subscriber to updates from the U.S. Department of Transportation (DOT), we thought you might be interested in hearing about the historic transportation legislation recently passed by Congress, Moving Ahead for Progress in the 21st Century (MAP-21). The new legislation requires DOT to develop implementation guidelines. We want to make sure that interested stakeholders can stay informed of our progress. We will communicate relevant events and milestones in this important task through the MAP-21 list, and we encourage you to subscribe to the MAP-21 list.
For example, subscribers to the “MAP-21” list received this email:
We are pleased to announce the launch of two National On-Line Dialogues focused on MAP-21 Implementation. These virtual sessions provide stakeholders with an opportunity to provide insights about priorities and implementation strategies on these two issues and will be open from September 13 to 23, 2012.
National Online Dialogue on MAP-21 Transportation Performance Measures
Please join this important dialogue to discuss and provide suggestions on the establishment of performance measures and standards (standards include items such as metrics, data collection, data sources, etc.) for States, MPOs, and/or transit grantees to use to assess the performance and condition of their transportation systems.
National Online Dialogue on MAP-21 Freight Policy
We hope that you log on to this dialogue and offer your suggestions on possible measures for the conditions and performance of a freight system and what should be included in the development of guidance for state freight plans.
These Online Dialogues are free and open to all and will be accessible 24/7 so that you can easily log on from home. You will have the opportunity to submit, comment on and rate ideas interactively with colleagues from across the country, creating a national exchange of ideas, suggestions and strategies for implementing these specific aspects of MAP-21.
If these online dialogues or other opportunities to learn more about MAP-21 appeal to you, please sign-up for MAP-21 Updates from DOT to continue to receive notices about our implementation efforts. You may also feel free to join the dialogues listed above.
