The Local Major Bridge Program provides federal funds to counties and municipal corporations for bridge replacement or bridge major rehabilitation projects. A Local Major Bridge is defined as a moveable bridge or a bridge having a deck area greater than 35,000 square feet. ODOT will provide up to 80% of eligible costs for construction only. The annual allocation is established by ODOT. Currently, there are 50 bridges identified statewide as Local Major Bridges (Identified in Appendix A of the Local Major Bridge Program Policy). To be eligible for funds, projects must have a General Appraisal of 5 or less.
We will begin soliciting projects for the 2014 program on August 1st.
