4.2.3: Categorize bottlenecks to inform prioritization (optional)

As a result of implementation of the 7-1-7 approach, a list of bottlenecks and proposed remedial actions will be compiled. To facilitate prioritization, jurisdictions have found it useful to categorize bottlenecks, the most common categories suggesting the areas most likely in greatest need of remedial actions and investment.

A list of bottleneck categories has been developed to support this process. In addition, the Data Consolidation Spreadsheet contains a sheet to list bottlenecks and assign them to a category. A table is then automatically generated showing the frequency of each category of bottleneck.
