PERMANENT RULES

TRANSPORTATION IMPROVEMENT BOARD


[ Filed September 21, 2004, 10:46 a.m. , effective October 22, 2004 ]


Purpose: The Transportation Improvement Board (TIB) has proposed to simplify how funds are allocated to its urban programs. The proposal was developed in consultation with local agency representatives and does not significantly change the net distribution to the regions. The distribution will be based on population and functionally classified lane miles within the urban area of the region. A third factor, the needs factor, will no longer be included in the calculation.

(3) One-third of the ratio shall be an actual or historical indicator of needs within the region as determined by the board.

The distribution of funds within each region shall be administered so as to permit complete arterial improvement program projects in each arterial classification to be authorized and funded.)) Apportionment of funds to arterial improvement program regions shall be defined in the following manner:

(1) One-half of the ratio shall be the population of the urban areas of each region divided by the total population of all urban areas of the state as last determined by the office of financial management;

(3) A region's allocation can be adjusted by up to five percent. Beginning 2004, regional allocations will be reviewed every five years to compensate for changes in project participation.
