The revisions to the apportionment are required pursuant to the terms of Title I, Section 111 of the SAFETEA-LU Technical Corrections Act of 2008, Pub. L.

  3. What is the availability of these funds?

    1. The Highway Bridge Program funds resulting from this apportionment are available for obligation until September 30, 2011. Any amounts not obligated by the State on or before September 30, 2011, 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 Federal share for all projects, except those on the Interstate System, will be in accordance with Section 120(b) of Title 23, U.S.C. For those on the Interstate System, the Federal share will be according to Section 120(a) of Title 23, U.S.C.

    4. The program codes to be used when obligating these funds are L110 and L1C0.

  4. What is the background information?

    1. Section 1101(a)(3) of the SAFETEA-LU authorizes a total of $4,388,369,431 in contract authority for the Highway Bridge Program for FY 2008.

    2. Section 104(f) of Title 23, U.S.C., applies a 1.25 percent takedown for Metropolitan Planning from the amount authorized for the Highway Bridge Program. This provision reduces the amount apportioned by $54,854,618.

    3. Section 111 of the SAFETEA-LU Technical Corrections Act of 2008, Pub. L. No. 110-244, requires a 0.205 percent takedown for the Future Strategic Highway Research Program from the amount apportioned for the Highway Bridge Program. This provision reduces the amount apportioned by $8,996,157.

    5. The total contract authority available for distribution in FY 2008 net of these reductions is $4,224,518,656.

  5. What is the requirement for the Bridge Program? Pursuant to Section 144(g) of Title 23 U.S.C., not less than 15 percent of the amount apportioned to each State in a fiscal year shall be expended for bridge program projects located on public roads, other than those on the Federal-aid highway system, or to complete the Warwick Intermodal Station located in Warwick, Rhode Island (including the construction of a people mover between the Station and the T.F.

Bridge Program funds shall be expended for replacement, rehabilitation, painting, performing systematic preventive maintenance or seismic retrofit of, or applying anti-icing or de-icing compositions 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 the Federal-aid highway system when the Secretary determines that the State has inadequate needs to justify the expenditure.

Second, pursuant to Section 104(f) of Title 23, United States Code, I have deducted 1.25 percent from the sum of $4,388,369,431 authorized to be appropriated for the fiscal year ending September 30, 2008, by Section 1101(a)(3) of the Safe, Accountable, Flexible, Efficient Transportation Equity Act: A Legacy for Users, for the purpose of carrying out Section 134 of Title 23, United States Code. The amount deducted is $54,854,618.

Third, pursuant to Section 111 of the SAFETEA-LU Technical Corrections Act of 2008, Pub. L.

The amount deducted is $8,996,157.

Fourth, pursuant to Section 144(g) of Title 23, United States Code, and after making deductions authorized by Section 104(f) of Title 23, United States Code, I have set aside $100,000,000 from the sum of $4,388,369,431 authorized to be appropriated for the fiscal year ending September 30, 2008, by Section 1101(a)(3) of the Safe, Accountable, Flexible, Efficient Transportation Equity Act: A Legacy for Users, for the purpose for carrying out Section 144 of Title 23, United States Code. The resulting amount is $4,224,518,656.

Fifth, that after making the deductions and set aside, I have computed the apportionment to each State and the District of Columbia of the remainder of the amounts authorized to be appropriated for the Bridge Program in the manner provided by law in accordance with the formula set forth.
