Funding opportunity: Truck Access Route Program
The purpose of the Truck Access Route Program (TARP) is to help local governments upgrade roads to accommodate 80,000 pound truck loads.
Every year, IDOT solicits local projects that can be constructed during the upcoming fiscal year. They encourage all to submit your inquiries and requests for assistance to the district Local Roads and Streets office that serves your county. This program will provide $45,000 per lane mile and $22,000 per eligible intersection for selected projects. The state participation will not exceed 50 percent of the total construction costs or $900,000, whichever is less. Read more and find application instructions. See also the circular letter. Applications for fiscal year 2022 will be accepted from November 11, 2020 through December 18, 2020 at 4:30 PM.
