The Ohio Department of Transportation, in coordination with the Federal Highway Administration has developed the Municipal Bridge Program in a concerted effort to eliminate local bridge deficiencies. This program provides federal funds to municipalities and Regional Transit Authorities for rehabilitation or replacement projects both on and off the Federal-Aid Highway system.
The Department allocates approximately $8m per year to this program, with an individual project cap of $2.5m. Awarded funds may be used for construction and construction engineering / inspection only. Design costs are not eligible for funding in this program.
Applications will be reviewed on a criteria-based project selection process by a committee comprised of ODOT District and Central Office representatives.
