Accepting Applications for Transportation Alternatives Projects

TMACOG is accepting applications for Transportation Alternatives Program (TAP) projects through August 12, 2016. There is approximately $785,000 available for Lucas and Wood counties. Applications are for projects to be funded as soon as State Fiscal Year (SFY) 2018. Categories of eligible activities include:

Bicycle and Pedestrian Facilities
Include multi-use paths and a variety of other bicycle and pedestrian-related facilities and improvements, conversion of rail corridors to trail use (including acquisition & construction), and preservation of existing bicycle/pedestrian facilities.
Safe Routes for Non-drivers
Safe Routes to School travel plans
Community Improvement Activities
Includes construction of turnouts, overlooks and viewing areas related to scenic/historic sites, preservation or rehabilitation of historic transportation facilities, archaeological planning and research related to impacts from an eligible transportation project, and vegetation management in transportation rights-of-way to improve roadway safety, prevent invasive species, and provide erosion control.
Environmental Mitigation Activity
Includes activities to address stormwater management and control, water pollution prevention or abatement for existing transportation facilities, reducing vehicle-caused wildlife mortality, or providing connectivity between land or aquatic habitats.

Projects have typically been fundable at 80 percent of construction costs plus construction engineering. The local sponsoring jurisdiction is responsible for the 20 percent balance of those costs as well as project preparation expenses. Additional information about the use of TAP funds can be found on the Federal Highway Administration website, under the FAST Act (Guidance on Transportation Alternatives here). For any questions about TAP applications, please contact Transportation Planner Lance Dasher at 419.241.9155, ext. 115.
