Allocation to Districts

Allocations for the NHS Rehabilitation Programs are approved by the commission, with the districts receiving allocations based on the following formula:

  • 30% - summation of flexible and rigid equivalent single-axle loads per non-interstate NHS section multiplied times the NHS section length
  • 30% - non-interstate NHS lane miles
  • 35% - non-interstate NHS lane miles (including interstate frontage roads) with “substandard” Distress Scores, based on Pavement Management Information System (PMIS) Distress Score less than 60
  • 5% - non-interstate NHS square footage of bridge deck area with sufficiency rating between 50 and 80.

The NHS Rehabilitation Programs are managed as bank balance programs with eligible projects developed by districts on an as-needed basis within their allocations. The NHS Rehabilitation Programs are usually one-year programs with the program funds available for use within four years.
