The draft document provides applicants with specific guidance regarding project funding, eligibility, and related information.The intention for the modifications is to provide a more consistent and uniform approach for all TRAC submissions.
Among the new scoring criteria being proposed is an increase in points for high traffic volumes, points for Return on Investment (ROI) specific to economic development, and an increase in points for local investment.
