Traffic Engineering Assistance Program (TEAP) Funding Now Available for Fiscal Year 2022
Application period 7/16/2021 through 8/31/21
The Missouri Department of Transportation is seeking projects to be funded with Traffic Engineering Assistance Program (TEAP) funds.
The Traffic Engineering Assistance Program (TEAP) allows local public agencies (LPAs) to receive engineering assistance for studying traffic engineering problems. LPAs facing a traffic safety or operational problem must utilize approved TEAP consultants from the LPA On-Call Consultant List to perform a traffic study.
Typical traffic engineering related projects include: corridor safety and/or operational analysis, intersection(s) safety and/or operational analysis, speed limit review, sign inventory, pedestrian/bike route analysis, parking issues, and other traffic studies, etc. During this program call, MoDOT is opening applications for ADA Transition Plans for TEAP funding. The ADA Transition planning work may utilize Trails & Sidewalk or TEAP consultants from the MoDOT LPA consultant on-call list.
This program call will award $135,000 in TEAP funds to local public agencies. Agencies are reimbursed for eligible project costs at a rate of 80 percent with the local agency providing a minimum 20 percent match. Funds administered by MoDOT will provide 80 percent of the TEAP project costs, up to $12,000 per project. If the total project cost is greater than $15,000, the local agency can pay more than 20 percent to complete the TEAP project, if desired. Awarded projects must be completed by spring of 2022.
Applications must be submitted by e-mail to the appropriate MoDOT District LPA Contact by August 31, 2021. Project awards will be announced in October 2021.
