Eligible Projects

Regional Surface Transportation Improvements

Capital improvement projects on regionally significant arterial highways which improve traffic flow and reduce congestion, such as: bottleneck intersection improvements, closure of gaps in the arterial system, and other arterial improvements. Project must be on the public right-of-way. Rehabilitation, Restoration and Resurfacing (3R) are eligible as a component of a larger capacity-enhancing project. Multimodal projects are encouraged.

Goods Movement Improvements

Grade separations, roadway geometric and operational improvements, intersection improvements, truck access improvements and other capacity enhancements on regionally significant roadways, major and secondary arterials, high truck volume arterials, dedicated truck routes, de-facto truck routes and/or other major freight corridors/facilities.

Project must be located on a public facility/structure that serves local and regional needs, supports industrial and commercial land uses and provides access to and from major activity centers, railyards, ports (air and sea) and other freight generators (warehouse/distribution centers). Project may include a minor Rehabilitation, Restoration and Resurfacing (3R) component of a larger Goods Movement Improvement.

Signal Synchronization & Bus Speed Improvements

Traffic signal synchronization, transit preferential treatment and priority systems, bottleneck intersection improvements, traffic control and monitoring systems, and Intelligent Transportation System (ITS).

Transportation Demand Management

Technology and/or innovation-based strategies, Ridesharing Incentive/Disincentive Programs, Parking Management Programs, Transportation Facilities Amenities, Commuter Service Centers, and New and Unique Demonstration Projects.

Bicycle Improvements

Projects that provide access and mobility for local and regional bicycle travel, gap closures that connect bikeway networks, on-street improvements to transit hubs, high-capacity bicycle parking, and innovative projects that promote bicycling. Rehabilitation, Restoration, and Resurfacing (3R) are eligible as a component of a larger project.

Pedestrian Improvements

Eligible projects may include: sidewalk construction, extensions and widening; curb ramps (as part of sidewalk reconstruction); enhanced pedestrian crossing features; landscaping; signage; lighting; and street furniture. Improvements must be for the use of the general public and located within a public right-of-way, in a public easement, or some other guarantee of public use.

Transit Capital

Bus purchases and construction of or improvement to transit centers, bus layover areas, park and ride lots, transit stops, commuter rail stations, and transit maintenance facilities.
