The response to this year’s Transportation Alternatives program was overwhelming, with 62 project proposals from around the region totaling nearly $70 million. The amount available is $17 million.
The program is a new funding source for from the Moving Ahead for Progress in the 21st Century Act (MAP-21), which focuses on non-traditional transportation projects like bicycle and pedestrian improvements, environmental mitigation or historic preservation.
The project list was developed by an ad hoc citizen advisory committee.
