Monitoring System (HPMS)
What is HPMS?
The HPMS program has been vital to the FHWA since it was begun in the 1980's. Much of the data reported in the system has had a direct impact on funding, planning, performance mesurement, and public assessibility to a vast amount of highway related data. The mission of Caltrans' Highway Performance Monitoring System is to provide the highest level of data quality in a cost-effective and timely manner. For more information, go to "What is HPMS?" page.
Who We Are
HPMS is a branch of the Office of Highway System Information and Performance (OHSIP) in the Division of Research, Innovation, and System Information (DRISI) located in the Department of Transportation headquarters building.
What We Do
The Highway Performance Monitoring System (HPMS) is a federally mandated inventory system and planning tool, designed to assess the nation's highway system. HPMS was created in 1978 as a continuing, sample-based monitoring program that requires annual data reporting instead of biennial special studies. The Highway Performance Monitoring System (HPMS) has been a highly successful federal-state partnership for over 30 years. This program helps measure the investment accountability of vast amounts of public funds; provides a wide variety of information to Congress for formulating federal-aid highway programs and making decisions on program funding; and serves the highway data and analytical needs of the Federal Highway Administration (FHWA), the transportation community, business, industry, and the general public.
