MDOT’s Local Agency Bridge Program Soliciting Bridge Projects for FY27: Deadline April 1

Posted on February 26, 2024 by John LaMacchia

The Michigan Department of Transportation (MDOT) has announced the solicitation of applications for candidate projects for the Local Bridge Program. Selected projects will be funded during the 2027 fiscal year (FY). Do not submit projects which cannot be committed to construction within FY 2027. The applications can be submitted by the local agency owner or their consultant. All bridge applications submitted in previous years that have not been selected for funding have been discarded. There is a limit of 4 applications from any one local agency. An agency must be able to fund all applications submitted for FY 2027 in that fiscal year.

The Local Bridge Program budget is estimated at $86 million for FY 2027. $36 million is additional funding from the Bipartisan Infrastructure Law (BIL). This amount may be subject to revision.

All applications are to be electronically submitted by Monday, April 1st, 2024.
