Pursuant to section 5(c)(3) of the STEA04, Part V, the Metropolitan Planning funds shall be available for obligation in the same manner as if the funds were apportioned under chapter 1 of title 23, United States Code.
The funds are available for obligation immediately and are subject to obligation controls in section 2(e)(3) of the STEA04, Part V, which provides that a State shall not obligate any funds for any Federal-aid highway program project after May 31, 2005, until enactment of a multi-year law reauthorizing the Federal-aid highway program, as well as obligation controls imposed by Division H of the Consolidated Appropriations Act, 2005, P.L. 108-447, the Transportation, Treasury, Independent Agencies, and General Government Appropriations Act, 2005.
The Program code to be used when obligating these funds is H45.
What action is required? Division Administrators should ensure that this Notice is provided to State departments of transportation.
