The PASS Metro Match program was a state funded program supplemented by local funding. The urban system program was a federally funded program supplemented by state and/or local funding.Anchor: #i1024031
Projects that are located within an air quality non-attainment area may need to be included in the Transportation Improvement Program of the MPO.Anchor: #i1024042
The commission approves projects selected for this category. Projects considered in this category are scheduled on a statewide basis for inclusion into Priority 1 of this program.Anchor: #i1024053
Because of the additional state funding required to match the increased federal funding and because of an increase in maintenance costs, there are not sufficient state funds to continue this program beyond our present commitment. The amount of funds to be committed to projects in Categories 17 TxDOT is limited. MPOs are encouraged to utilize STP funds to re-program PASS projects so they may be constructed at an earlier date.
Match for preliminary engineering, construction, and right-of-way purchase/utility adjustments will be in accordance with TxDOT's Policy for Matching Funds - Participation Ratios.
Levels of authorization are assigned to the projects selected for development as part of the PASS category.
- Priority 1 - projects authorized for PS&E completion, utilities adjustments, and construction within the next four fiscal years
- Priority 2 - projects authorized for PS&E preparation and right-of-way acquisition.
