Posted on June 16, 2015 by Dene Westbrook

MDOT has posted the FY 2016 Planning Guide on their Local Agencies web page. Please click here to view.

MDOT  Local Agency Programs (LAP) has also posyed an update on the federal obligation authority making its way through the FHWA and MDOT funding formulas. The final funding amounts will not be announced for 3- 4 weeks, the new obligational authority will result in a limited amount of new project obligations. It is anticipated that the current backlog of projects LAP is holding would exhaust this new obligational authority. Agency can use the “Advanced Construct” funding method, however your agency could be liable for the federal share if Congress does not appropriate additional funding for FY 2015.
