Allocation to Districts
Allocations for the STP Urban/Rural 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 section multiplied times the non-interstate section length
- 30% - non-interstate lane miles
- 35% - non-interstate lane miles (including interstate frontage roads) with “substandard” Distress Scores, based on Pavement Management Information System (PMIS) Distress Score less than 60.
- 5% - square footage of bridge deck area with sufficiency rating between 50 and 80.
This program is managed as a bank balance program with eligible projects developed by the districts on an as-needed basis within their allocations. The STP Urban/Rural Rehabilitation Programs are usually one-year programs with the program funds available for use within four years.Anchor: #i1022464
Funds can only be used to rehabilitate any roadway on the state highway system with a functional classification greater than a local road or rural minor collector. The roadway must be rehabilitated to applicable design standards.
