Traffic Engineering Assistance Program (TEAP) Funding Now Available for FY 2020 & FY 2021
Application period 7/26/2019 through 9/20/19
The Missouri Department of Transportation is seeking projects to be funded with Traffic Engineering Assistance Program (TEAP) funds.
The Traffic Engineering Assistance Program (TEAP) allows local public agencies (LPAs) to receive engineering assistance for studying traffic engineering problems. LPAs facing a traffic safety or operational problem can utilize the LPA On-Call Consultant List to perform a traffic study.
Typical traffic engineering related projects include: corridor safety and/or operational analysis, intersection(s) safety and/or operational analysis, speed limit review, sign inventory, pedestrian/bike route analysis, parking issues, and other traffic studies, etc. During this program call, MoDOT is opening applications for ADA Transition Plans for TEAP funding. The ADA Transition planning work may utilize Trails & Sidewalk or TEAP consultants from the MoDOT LPA consultant on-call list.
Local public agencies are reimbursed for eligible project costs at a rate of 80 percent with the local agency providing a 20 percent match. Funds administered by MoDOT will provide 80 percent of the TEAP project costs, up to $8,000 per project. If the total cost is greater than $10,000, the local agency can pay more than 20 percent to complete the TEAP project, if desired.
This year MoDOT is awarding two years' worth of funding with projects to receive funding in the year funds are available. Eligible projects must be able to be completed by spring of 2020 or spring of 2021.
Applications must be submitted by e-mail to the appropriate MoDOT District LPA Contact by September 20, 2019. Project awards will be announced in November 2020.
