  1. PURPOSE. To transmit the revised certificate of apportionment of Bridge Program funds authorized for FY 1998 pursuant to the Transportation Equity Act for the 21st Century (TEA-21) as amended by TEA-21 Restoration Act. The apportionment is effective immediately.

  2. CANCELLATION. FHWA Notice 4510.391, 'Apportionment of Fiscal Year (FY) 1998 Bridge Program Funds,' dated June 10, 1998, is hereby canceled pursuant to TEA-21 Restoration Act which amends section 144(g)(4) of title 23, United States Code.

  3. AVAILABILITY

    1. The Bridge Program funds resulting from this apportionment are available for obligation until September 30, 2001. Any amounts not obligated by the State on or before September 30, 2001, shall lapse.

    2. The funds resulting from this apportionment are available for obligation immediately and will be subject to obligation controls in force at the time of obligation.

    3. The participating rate for these funds is 80 percent.

    4. The appropriation codes are Q10, Q11 and Q12.

    5. This apportionment includes amounts advanced pursuant to the Surface Transportation Extension Act of 1997.

    6. In accordance with section 1103(m) of TEA-21, the amounts resulting from this apportionment will be reduced (except for Massachusetts) by the funds provided by the Surface Transportation Extension Act of 1997 for the Bridge Program (refer to Notice 4510.384).

Pursuant to 23 U.S.C. 144(g), not less than 15 percent nor more that 35 percent of the amount apportioned to each State shall be expended for bridge program projects located on public roads, other than those on the Federal-aid highway system. Bridge Program funds may be expended to replace, rehabilitate, paint or seismic retrofit, or apply calcium magnesium acetate to eligible highway bridge projects. The Secretary of Transportation, after consultation with State and local officials, may, with respect to a State, reduce the requirement for expenditure for bridges not on a Federal-aid highway system when the Secretary determines that the State has inadequate needs to justify the expenditure.

CERTIFICATE OF APPORTIONMENT FROM THE SUM OF
$2,941,454,000 AUTHORIZED TO BE APPROPRIATED
FOR THE BRIDGE PROGRAM
FOR THE FISCAL YEAR ENDING SEPTEMBER 30, 1998

TO--

The Secretary of the Treasury of the United States and the State Highway Agencies:

Pursuant to title 23, United States Code, the Transportation Equity Act for the 21st Century, section 9503 of the Internal Revenue Code of 1986, and the delegation of authority from the Secretary of Transportation to the Federal Highway Administrator, section 1.48 of title 49, Code of Federal Regulations, I certify--

First, that the Secretary of the Treasury has made the estimate required by section 9503(d) of the Internal Revenue Code of 1986 and based on that estimate I have determined that the amount which can be apportioned for bridge replacement and rehabilitation for the fiscal year ending September 30, 1998, is $2,941,454,000 which is 100 percent of the amount authorized to be appropriated for that fiscal year by section 1101(a)(3) of the Transportation Equity Act for the 21st Century.

Second, that in compliance with section 104(a) of title 23, United States Code, I have estimated that it will be necessary for administering the provisions of title 23, United States Code, to deduct 1.45 percent from the sum of $2,941,454,000 authorized to be appropriated for the fiscal year ending September 30, 1998, and I have deducted said 1.45 percent.

Third, that in compliance with section 1103(e) of the Transportation Equity Act for the 21st Century, and after making the deduction authorized by section 104(a) of title 23, United States Code, I have deducted one percent of the sum remaining from the authorization of $2,941,454,000 for the fiscal year ending September 30, 1998, for the purpose of carrying out section 134 of title 23, United States Code.

Fourth, that pursuant to section 144(g)(1)(B) of title 23, United States Code, I have set aside $25,000,000 from the sum of $2,941,454,000 authorized to be appropriated for the fiscal year ending September 30, 1998, for the discretionary bridge program to carry out section 144(g)(1)(B) of title 23, United States Code.

Fifth, that after making said deductions and set aside, I have computed the apportionment among the States and the District of Columbia of the remainder of the amount authorized to be appropriated for the fiscal year ending September 30, 1998, in the manner provided by section 144(e) of title 23, United States Code.

Sixth, that subject to the foregoing deductions and set aside, the sums which are hereby apportioned to each State and the District of Columbia, effective immediately are respectively as follows:
