Title

FHWA Highway Infrastructure Funding Swap (10 minutes)

Aaron Cain, LPA Staff

 

Narrative

On February 13, 2020, the Federal Highway Adminstration (FHWA) released the funding amounts for states and localities for the Highway Infrastructure Program (Infra). DCHC is scheduled to receive $414,806 in 2020 from this program.

 

However, Infra funds can only be used for highway projects for vehicular travel benefit. Therefore, in order to have access to funding that aligns with DCHC priorities for non-highway projects, NCDOT has offered to swap those funds for an equal amount of Surface Transportation Block Grant (STBG) funds, which can be used on those projects. Staff proposes to include the additional STBG funding in the upcoming call for projects for DCHC Surface Transportation Block Grant-Direct Attributable (STBGDA) and Transportation Alternatives Program-Direct Attributable (TAPDA) funds.

 

Recommendation

TC Action: Recommended approval of the Infra fund swap with NCDOT.

 

Board Action: Approve the Infra fund swap with NCDOT.
