    Additional Information

    Each year's application process is for the last year of a rolling four-year program. The city is responsible for the balance of the construction costs and also for all costs associated with preliminary engineering, environmental studies and documents, final design and right of way.

    The scoring criteria are criteria-based to focus on eliminating deficiencies and include: ADT, Volume to Capacity, Pavement condition, SIP Maps, Crash Frequency, Equivalent Property Damage, and Economic Health (unemployment). Other factors such as feedback from a multidisciplinary committee and whether the applicant has received previous funding are also considered when making award selections.
