The February 28, 2003 memorandum, soliciting bridge projects for the subject program, generated 35 applications from 15 States. The total amount requested was $9,669,035, and by this memo a total of $5,608,435 is allocated to eligible projects.
Twenty-four applications have been approved, and the proposed award amounts are shown in the attached table.
The Federal share payable is 80 percent and should be programmed under Appropriation Code Q06. The obligation limitation is 100 percent. We request that each Division office for those States receiving an award monitor the obligation of funds. Please report by August 15, 2003 the status of unobligated funds to the Headquarters Office of Bridge Technology, HIBT-30, if the funds cannot be obligated this fiscal year.
As part of the application process, each project is to also provide a publishable report which includes the history of the bridge, both original and new construction techniques, an accurate documentation of the restoration work, cost information, and performance of any innovative techniques used for repair work. We request that the FHWA contact listed on the application form monitor the progress of this report to assure its completion.
If there are any questions or concerns, please call Steven L. Ernst at (202) 366-4619.
