About the APM
The Analysis Procedures Manual (APM) provides the current methodologies, practices and procedures for conducting long term analysis of Oregon Department of Transportation (ODOT) plans and projects.
A major update of the manual is currently in progress. APM version 2 will incorporate methodologies from sources such as the 2010 Highway Capacity Manual (HCM) and the Highway Safety Manual (HSM). As new chapters or sections of APM version 2 are completed, they will be published on this webpage, and APM version 1 will be modified to refer to the version 2 procedures.
The APM does not establish any accepted or preferred software. Any analysis software is acceptable as long as it is consistent with the current APM and HCM.
The APM has been updated. Please see the August 2013 Change Sheet for what has changed.
APM User Group
The Analysis Procedures Manual User Group (APMUG) is open to all interested parties either internal or external to ODOT. For information on APMUG, see the Analysis Procedures Manual User Group (APMUG) Guidelines. If you are interested in joining the group, contact Doug Norval.
Next meeting of the APMUG:
Date: January 8, 2014
Location: ODOT Region 1 Headquarters, 123 NW Flanders Street, Portland, OR
Start time: 9:00 am (tentative)
End time: 4:00 pm (tentative)
Suggestions for agenda topics and presenters are requested. Please submit any suggestions to Doug Norval.
Highway Capacity Manual
2010 Highway Capacity Manual methods should be followed on all new projects. Projects that were started prior to the 2010 HCM should continue to use methods of the HCM 2000. The APM Version 2 update will be providing further guidance on use of the new HCM 2010 methods as chapters are developed.
