December 6, 2021

Federally funded transportation projects will be considered by the District 7 Area Transportation Partnership (ATP-7) for inclusion in the 2023-2026 Area Transportation Improvement Program (ATIP),using Surface Transportation Funds.

 

ATP-7 will be accepting applications for the following Surface Transportation Program (STP) program areas:

 

  1. STP Small Urban (City Streets/Bridges) – Projects are being solicited primarily for the year 2026 for city street and bridge (on the federal aid system) projects.  The federal funds can fund up to     80 percent of eligible project costs. Projects on city federal-aid routes may be proposed by the city involved.  Applicants must use the “District 7 STP Small Urban Funds” application form, which can be found on the ATP-7 website at the following link:      http://www.dot.state.mn.us/d7/atp/applications.html.

 

  1. STP Rural (County Roads/Bridges) –  Projects are being solicited primarily for the year 2026 for county road and bridge (on the federal aid system) projects.  The federal funds can fund up to 80 percent of eligible project costs. Off-system bridges are being solicited through a separate process. Applicants must use the “District 7 STP Rural (County Roads/Bridges)” form, which can be found on the ATP-7 website at the following link:  http://www.dot.state.mn.us/d7/atp/applications.html.

 

  1. The Transportation Alternatives (TA) program kicked off in October with the release of the TA LOI (Letter of Intent). While helpful to the process, LOI  submittal is not a prerequisite for completing an application. Federal funds will be primarily for the year 2026 and can fund up to 80 percent of  construction costs. There are numerous types of eligible projects including but not limited to sidewalks, trails and safe routes to school infrastructure. If you are planning to submit a full TA application, or for more information on the TA solicitation process, visit the ATP-7 website at: http://www.dot.state.mn.us/d7/atp/applications.html.

 

All solicitations will require use of the newly designed forms found on the ATP-7 website.  Old forms will not be accepted.
