Call For Paper Title
From Tangle to Tango: Unraveling the Confusion of State and Local Processes in Capital Programming
Call Description

State and local DOTs often have differing processes and requirements for capital construction projects. Federally-derived state DOT funding requires that local aid recipients comply with policies that are often times more rigorous than local-level policies. This, in turn, tends to burden local aid recipients and results in unexpected administrative burdens, non-compliant end-products, rescinded funds and general disinterest in pursuing federal dollars. TRB’s Committee on Transportation Issues in Major U.S. Cities (ABE30) is seeking abstracts for presentations that highlight case studies in which state and local DOTs have worked well together to streamline requirements, documentation, and communications to result in higher quality and timely capital projects.
