Questions and Answers Regarding June 10, 2008 Memorandum

Question (Q1): Are Federal funds still available for replacing (in kind) damaged safety appurtenances where existing safety appurtenances have already been upgraded to acceptable safety criteria?

Answer (A1): Our June 10, 2008 memo, while specifically addressing betterment situations, does not change the longstanding FHWA policy of eligibility of Federal funds for replacing damaged safety appurtenances. Where existing safety appurtenances have already been upgraded to acceptable safety criteria, regular Federal-aid highway construction funds and safety program funds are available for replacing (in kind) damaged safety appurtenances.
