CALLS FOR PROJECTS

The Transportation Alternatives (TA) Set-Aside, formally known as Transportation Alternatives Program (TAP), call for projects (aka applications) is now open through the OK Dept. of Transportation website!

The Transportation Alternatives (TA) Set-Aside provides funding for a variety of transportation projects that prioritize safety, comfort, and connectivity to destinations for all users of our transportation networks, including pedestrians and cyclists. 

Projects include pedestrian and bicycle facilities; construction of turnouts, overlooks, and viewing areas; community improvements such as historic preservation and vegetation management; environmental mitigation related to stormwater and habitat connectivity; recreational trails; safe routes to school projects; and vulnerable road user safety assessments. The ODOT is seeking projects outside of the Oklahoma City and Tulsa urbanized areas, and based on the 2020 census, are divided into three categories: populations of up to 5,000; 5,001-50,000, and 50,001-200,000.
