2017 Traffic Engineering Assistance Program Award Announcement!
The LPA Program is pleased to announce the FY2017 TEAP Project Awards.
The Traffic Engineering Assistance Program (TEAP) allows local public agencies (LPA) to receive engineering assistance for studying traffic engineering problems. LPAs awarded TEAP funding for a traffic safety or operational problem must utilize the LPA On-Call Consultant List to perform the traffic study.
All awarded project sponsors will receive an official email informing them of the next steps in the TEAP process.
Local public agencies are reimbursed for eligible project costs at a rate of 80 percent with the local agency providing a 20-percent match. Funds administered by MoDOT will provide 80 percent of the TEAP project costs, up to $8,000 per project. If the total cost is greater than $10,000, the local agency can pay more than 20 percent to complete the TEAP project, if desired.
Eligible projects must be completed by April of 2017.
