What Are the TAP and CPSP Programs?
During the 2017 Legislative Session, a companion bill to major transportation legislation established a funding mechanism for children pedestrian safety projects on the state and local system. LHTAC and ITD developed a joint program to fund these projects. The Children Pedestrian Safety Program projects should be “bid ready” within 90 days of award and also “shovel ready” so construction can be completed by late fall or early winter 2018. The projects must be considered maintenance such as paths / sidewalks along an existing roadway, connecting sidewalks / paths between terminal points, ADA ramps, paving an existing pathway, and crossing facilities across an existing roadway including signing / signalization. Program guidance can be found here and information and links to the application here. Applications are due by December 21 at 4:30 p.m. MST.
ITD is now accepting applications for TAP projects. TAP provides federal funding for on- and off-road bicycle and pedestrian facilities such as sidewalks, bike lanes and crosswalks, and for Safe Routes to School educational projects such as coordinators and infrastructure. Projects must include a local cash-only match of 7.34%. Info and links to the application can be found here. Applications are due December 1 by 12:00 p.m.
