Transportation Performance Metrics

A Road Map for Setting Priorities

Counties are on the front lines of Washington State's Transportation challenges bearing responsibility for nearly 50 percent of the state's roads and bridges. The county road infrastructure is aging, funds are decreasing, and reliance on county transportation systems to sustain the state's economy and provide mobility is growing.

Counties may use the metrics on this dashboard to meet the following objectives:

  • Increase accountability of public expenditures
  • Communicate results to citizens
  • Secure support for investments by focusing on results in the face of reduced resources
  • Respond to state and federal statutes

The transportation metrics and this dashboard reflect the six transportation policy goals established by the Legislature in RCW 47.04.280 and complement the biennial State Transportation Attainment Report prepared by the Office of Financial Management.

The Washington State Legislature funded this project to assist county governments in improving the delivery of their transportation programs and projects. The County Road Administration Board, the Washington State Association of County Engineers, and the state's 39 counties are partners in this effort.
